This is a very sweet (manmade?) beach at the shore of a nice lake. Lifeguard on duty. The part of the lake closest to the beach area is cordoned off into different swimming sections. Very pleasant on a sunny day!

We stopped by just to check the place out. But I wish we had our swim wear so we could take a dip in the inviting water. We visited on a Thursday so it was not crowded at all. But not sure how it'll be...More

One can spend hours strolling around the lake, looking at the stunning nature or sitting and meditating on the beauty.

On a sunny day this is a great spot to bring family and friends. There is a charge for children and adults. I feel that's good because it would get more crowded if there wasn't a fee. It's a great area for kids to swim...More
