I like swimming and the people were very friendly. They took us all over the lake and to a special place on the lake that; though, we could stay for a couple of minutes.

You can go for a couple of hours but i would recommend renting a house/room to spend the day and night. You can hire a boat to take you around the lake. There are beautiful houses around the lake.
