So much to do I will leave it to you, but if you like lake this is a mush. Take a dinner cruse, rent a boat for the day, walk the trails, enjoy a picnic,... More

Take the boat cruise... a great way to see the entire lake and learn how it was formed and its real purpose in flood control as well as recreation. Kudos to the Army Corps of Engineers!!

Stayed at the Ridge loop campground which was closest to the Allegripis trails. Nice clean camp and bath rooms. Riding was amazing! Awesome well kept trails. Only downside is your a few miles from a store if you need something and no real camp store on premise.

The area is lovely. Large lake with boating, fishing opportunities. Plenty of wide open space to run, bike, hike. Fire pits, trails, playgrounds for the wee ones. It is a wonderful area. You won't be disappointed.
