We have seen the view during the day and it is spectacular especially in the fall when all the leaves have changed colour. Looking out at night is a different experience entirely but equally beautiful. Watching as the lights from the ferry pass through the darkness to the far shore is a sight to see.

Was staying at the Drake for the weekend. Was recommended we come here by a server when we went for breakfast. It was a beautiful drive and a great natural phenomenon to see. I'm a hobbyist photographer so I probably appreciated it a bit more than my wife. If we came here only for the lake we would have been... More

We stopped here on our recent trip to Picton. There was ample parking, and signage that described the natural occuring phenomenon. It's pretty neat that you've got a large lake basically right at your feet, but a short distance away, the Bay is beside you 200 feet below you. We were there on a Friday morning in October, so there... More

Good place to visit. If you read about how the lake is formed and the spiritual element about it, it is nice. You can't walk around it which is what I wanted to do. You can see it from the one angle off the road. Don't expect to be there very long so its something you'd stop and see for... More

A lovely peaceful spot to sit and have a picnic. There is a micro brewery and restaurant there also but we were there before they opened for the season. Nevermind, interesting history and legend about the lake.

There are signage that describes how this incredible geological phenomenon occurred so that you can simply oogle the views. Even in overcast weather conditions, the spot is spectacular.

It's close to a couple of nice eateries so it has that going for it and it offers a great view of Glenora on one side and the raised lake on the other. I can't see spending more that 10 minutes here though tbh.

Great little resort. Staff is very friendly and helpful and eager to please. Cabins are "rustic", very well stocked with most things that travellers might need to prepare a meal. Warm and cozy and very reasonably priced. Very scenic area and numerous attractions close by.
