Hiked the Beacham Trail from the recreation area to the dam and then back. The trail wraps around the whole lake, but the part on the other side of the dam didn't seem as open as the first half. If we'd had better walking shoes...More

We spent an entire day hiking the many miles of frees trails. It's a great spot for those who enjoy the outdoors. We will definitely go back with kayaks & poles and enjoy the lake next time.

We had a great day at the lake even though it rained on us twice while we were there. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My husband and older son fished while I hiked around the lake with our younger son. Perfect family outing.

Lots of options for hiking. Beautiful setting for outdoor adventures. We went to see birds and we're rewarded with birds and wild hogs! The dam is worth the walk and there are so many beautiful views along the way.

I agree with the other answer too. The lake is really beautiful but no shore line for much of anything. Not the right place to have a wedding at
