A must see wonder of nature. Beautiful lake surrounded my soaring mountains and mother nature. Saw chipmunks and squirrels. Totally free experience if your not taken in by the tourist traps. Free shuttle bus provided if car park is full.

Hi Annette ... There are canoe rentals at the boathouse on the west shore of the lake. However, life jackets are a must when you are canoeing, especially with children. It is a great experience, but I would ask at the... More
