  • Extremely clean lake. Buildings surrounding the body of water are historic in nature and pretty stunning. A boat ride is not to be missed.  more »
  • The Lake is very beautiful and quiet and you can take a few boats that leave from the jetty. You can take very special pictures and feel the peace that irradiates the water of this Lake. In the afternoon, it is very rewarding to make this visit.
