Comments and Tips:

    Nice quiet lake, with only a few people, could be a little cleaner though, there was trash all around the lake and some floating in the water, other than that, it was nice and quiet, with lots of shade.


I went fishing today it was very good fishing I took my family and we all caught a lot of fish I caught 2 big trout off powerbait ( rainbow) and very clean lake and the staff there showed me and my family a lot of hospitality I will definitely be back
