My family and I love drives where we can stop and have lunch with the kids and get them out of the city. this is a nice stop to see in the desert with good shade and tables. we may camp here in the future.

Nice short walking trail, but far from Las Vegas. In my opinion, it was not worth the drive. I suggest bringing bug spray, the mosquitoes and gnats travel in clouds and are relentless. It was nice to see water in the middle of no where, but you're not allowed to swim in it. The north half of the trail is closed off and dry. I don't plan on visiting again. Well maintained dirt road, any vehicle can drive it. A few camping spots but not much to see or do. I don't plan on coming here again.

Drove around the lake and stopped to have lunch here at a picnic table in the campground area. Relaxing views for the area. Well maintained dirt roads.

Nice and easy level walk around the lake. The lake provides cool breezes, shady trees, and various water fowl. Pleasant morning stroll after staying overnight at the campground.
