This is definitely a place you want to stop at. It is a beautiful drive to get there. We saw lots of families having picnics and people at the beach.

This is a beautiful lake. Nice place to swim. White sand beach! You will see wildlife. We had the whole lake to our selves for a couple hours. Clean area.
