“very nice day at the lake”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

the lake is beautiful, take a motor boat or a pedal boat for 30 mins.
There's a small amusement park on the bank of the lake, mostly for children but we enjoyed is as well :)
nice place to spend half a day.

“Avoid”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I visited the lake after a lapse of nearly 25 years and was shocked to find that over commercialisation had ruined its natural beauty. Tin shacks barricading the approach to the lake had replaced the trees and the water was full of weeds. An utter waste of time.

“Nostalgic”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We visited in October, 2013. Oers boating rides and other kid's activities. Authorities mus pay attention to cleanliness of the water. Crowded. Yet it offers nostalgic memories of OOTY. A must visit.
