Fascinating lake and forest scene. Easy to reach from Bolu city center. Has a nice trekking path by the lakeside. Avoid weekends if you worry about crowds.

This lake is clean, the hills and forests beautiful, the place attractive and peaceful. Funny that nobody swims in lakes in Turkey, nor are there any boats on the lake, this makes lakes a bit "empty". We did some serious mountain biking around the lake...More

We stayed near here on a recent trip to Bolu. One afternoon we drove out to see the lake. It was extremely crowded with families having picnics and cook-outs. Our stroll around the lake was probably 2 miles and it was beautiful.

It was a very beatiful place like a dream point in old days. At present, on weekends very full, bylocals and immigrated arabs. grill smoke every where, One day trip is sufficent just to see.
