The lake is great to take a walk on the dams or go out in a boat. Nice family place. Enjoy the ducks and geese. People fish and swim and jet ski too.

Back to the basics, thank God for the rain. The Lake is full again, just in time for the spring and summer, lot of things to do picnicking boating swimming and a nice trail that goes all of the way around.
