“Great day of family fun and fishing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We went to Cliffside for a community fishing event for children. It is a great place for the entire family. Although the fish were not cooperative, the swimming hole is inviting, the bathhouse was clean and the picnic areas were convenient, including parking. This is a great place to spend an afternoon.

“Nice small lake - not crowded and fun to fish at”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Every year we make a trip to this lake to do a little fishing because it is occasionally stocked with trout. It is never real crowded in the spring and a quiet peaceful place to relax. There is also a swimming area, which is probably fun when the water is warmer. The lake is on the top of a mountain near the Highlands, NC

“Easy, but sometimes you need easy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a short walk around a lake. It's level, so there isn't really any opportunity to get your heart rate up (unless you run). But on Sunday morning when you don't want to get sweaty before the drive home, it's perfect.
