I love this place. Have been going here for years. Beautiful lake and beautiful houses built on lake that are awesome to see. Did a lot of boating on this lake as our children were growing up and they loved it too.

The lake has the clearest water, not a lot of boat traffic. We were at the beginning of a cove. We had the big water view, but not much traffic. Spent the entire week just lounging in the water. We will be back!

This lake is a beautiful place. It is a great place to fish or just a good place for recreation. There are many lovely homes on this lake too.

I do not see why you could not. I did not see anyone there Kayaking & I did not either. However, the water was beautiful & it seems like it would be good, so long at you plan your put in & take out carefully.
