  • Small beach, but a nice spot to picnic or hang out and go in the pond. Facilities were super clean. Nice trails for a hike if you get bored.
  • Great Trail in beautiful place to walk. There's a path that goes all the way around the lake we took it and it only took about an hour. They also have larger Trails or people jog on. Lots of nature lots of UT.
  • Great hikes, well maintained and well marked. The roads are pretty gnarly, so don't bring a low riding car if you can avoid it. Download hiking trails online ahead of time.
  • Beautiful lake with trail around it. Nice home with kids.
  • Great place for bike rides, but you will climb a steep hill. The road is rough, so be careful coming down. Do hike to the top of the vista trail. You will be rewarded with a view to the west. On a clear day you see into NY and the Catskills, beyond the Hudson River.
