  • Beautiful location on the water, very rich flora and fauna. Birds are easy to spot. But be careful how you go here. There is 1 nice platform with good facilities (relatively speaking) the other locations on the Lake have expired, dirty, or are full of wasps. Do not travel with Ruben, he has given us the beautiful platform sold and we have ended on a dirty old platform without working plumbing. Ruben was after this trip without a trace, phone was not included. Only one more to have had bad luck and the message that we were allowed to figure out.
