Very beautiful lake to kayak or take a boat ride. Remote campsites around the lake accessible by boat or kayak. All water front with firerings and mowed grassy areas. Very relaxing. And yes, good fishing too.

We stayed with friends at a campground close by and loved it. It's quiet, relaxing and just beautiful. Kayaking a must and lots of pictures!

Good sized lake. We rented a pontoon boat from the on site business. Enjoyed the day boating and swimming from the boat as well as some decent "beach" areas. No sand, it's all rock. Saw plenty of wildlife as well. Appears you can boat in...More

Booked our campsites from the website with never being in this campground before. I wish we would have drove through before we booked to camp. We reserved sites 75 and 77 for tent camping. Site 75 was all gravel with just a very small patch...More
