This is a great place to go on a walk, where you can get way from the rat race and just enjoy nature. It has many guests but is not obnoxiously crowded. I used to live up on the bluff where the apts. were. Itw as very nice. I don't fish so have not tried the lake itself.

This is not an alpine lake, but still a nice place to take the family for a picnic or to bicycle or skate on a dedicated trail. I wouldn't eat the fish from the lake but it is still a welcome rest from the suburbun sprawl. Bring your bike, skates, or dog.

As with most of the lakes in SD parking is free, hooray. The only problem problem with this place is that the trail does not go all of the way around the lake, you must turn back before the dam. If you need a better burner do the Cowles Mountain trail nearby.

I love to walk at the lake. I enjoy watching the ducks & it's pretty out there. You can also take a lunch & have a picnic. Bring your dog. Good place to get away & get some exercise in.
