  • Brisk even in the summer. Another beautiful lake and a great place to hike and picnic. Just bring warm clothing.  more »
  • while it can be busy and loud, we got lucky and had a relatively quiet day, did the entire outer shore line of the lake in about 2 hours, not pushing it. Pretty.  more »
  • It is also nice to go on a Sunday for a picnic just to get away from the city. Lots of picnic tables and nice picnic area right on the lake. The pets ie dogs have their own area.  more »
