Awesome area! The lake was absolutely beautiful, great to bring your dog down to the lake and let them run around. Even saw a black bear!

I love this area! It's an easy, enjoyable walk I can do with my dog and son (under 2yrs). Everytime I go, I am amazed at the views. It's never the same!

Great day, amazing views. The water is really cold but it was worth it. Parking is limited and we had to drive in a circle a few times but only after 10 minutes we got a spot. $5 for all day parking. Animals are welcome. You can rent kayaks and bikes on site. Several trails in the area so a few options for people who want to climb elevation.
