Lake Glenville is absolutely gorgeous. We rent nice pontoon boats from Trillium and always have a blast. It is a perfect ski lake. The water is gorgeous. The staff at Trillium is awesome.

Lovely, lovely lake. Beautiful homes (some for rent to vacationers). Serene, lovely scenery, not crowded. Definitely a bit secluded - wonderful week's stay here.

How far are the lake waterfalls from the public boat access? We have kayaks and would love to kayak to one of the falls. But not sure about the distance.

On the north end of the lake go west on Pine Creek Rd, just past the bridge over the dam is a brand new swimming picnic play area. Enjoy!
