We drove to the lake - a bit of a dusty road, but nothing crazy. The lake/swimming area that is roped off is pretty small, but there is a huge area with inflatables that looked super fun. The "beach" area was quiet and thankfully not...More

Good for kids, nice lake, could use a walkway around the lake. I liked the hammocks under the shade trees. if you don't take the lift down to the lake your car will be covered with dust from the gravel road.

Take the time to ride down the mountain, its a beautiful view from all lifts ... The lake at the bottom is a nice place to eat or have a cold drink

The lift ride is really nice and peaceful - definitely a "must do." What's nice is you can keep taking it if you'd like. The lake is your typical mountain lake with "brown" water. Some recreational items and a relatively small beach. The lift is...More

This is a must do if you are in the village! We could see for miles and even passed over a momma deer with her twins. It's a little pricey but WELL worth it!

We all traveled from the top to the lake below. Some folks in our group had never been on a chair lift. Staff were great.

What a relaxing place to take the whole family. They have water and non water activities not to mention the view on the way down on the ski lift. Paddleboards, kayaks and canoes are all free with the passes and a large inflatable area for...More
