Not much to do here but it is close by so we tend to go often. The lake itself is beautiful and mirrors the bright blue sky and trees surrounding it's shores. There are only two trails and both are very short but have nice scenic views of the lake. It seems that most visitors of Payne Lake come to fish. I would't drive a long distance to come here but it does make for a nice day trip. There are also some nice campsites on the lake. The last time we visited, they told us one of the trails was not maintained enough to hike, leaving only one hike-able trail that is about 3/4 of a mile.
