There's a nice little store at the top of the hill where you can catch a brief history of the lake. $5 for each adult is kinda pricey. The boat trailer and single car parking fills quickly so arrive early. The beach is nice with...More

Spent a weekend kayaking and hanging out with friends here. Absolutely delightful place! Though there were quite a few boats, there was space for everyone. Well-maintained walking trails and miles of pretty shoreline. Would return again in a heartbeat!

No, we didn't come across anything either while we were there....we were there in the spring though, so you never know!
