The boat launch area have lovely picnic grounds, so wonderful for a relaxing afternoon. The lake is beautiful and very clear. There is a local boat rental just off Route 9. This is a wonderful place to spend some outdoor time.

Had great day at the reservoir. Canoeing and chilling out. Grills available and clean portapotty. Just watch out for the naturalists if you don't want to see them don't go looking.

A local shop owner recommended we go see the reservoir and when she said it had a Glory Hole, I was intrigued! The walkway offers a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and has a nice hiking path if you have the time.
