    One of the reasons I love this area! This lake is awesome and so people friendly. Tons of trails through the park will take to wondrous views or one of several famous waterfalls in the parks. Lake is great for fishing, paddling, swimming with lots of shoreline to explore. Bald eagles, deer, and bear can often be seen. Beautiful lake!
