Nice view of the dam and lake. Park benches set up and trails down to the water and easy walking on the dam. So peaceful and relaxing to watch the sun set over the lake!

We walked across the dam and the view is beautiful. Very pretty lake. It is nearly a mile across the dam. Great place to get a walk in.
