We stayed at Lush Resort and rented a boat from Water Rush during our 5 day stay. Not as much to do this stay due to Rockin S being & PK speedway being closed for the summer. Overall it was still a great vacation.

We needed the photos for an assignment. It's very unusual because of the rock bluffs that encase the lake. Very photogenic, but you need to rent a boat, which we did. Any view of Hell's Gate is from private property. A plus is that you...More
