A relaxing and peaceful place

We enjoyed the quietness of the place and the beauty of the scenery. The bar near the beach and the parking place provides snacks and drinks.

Went their mainly to kill some time but found it to be very nice and scenic with excellent swimming facilities within the lake.

Stunning views from the roadway at the top of the dam, a careful drive down to the base is spectacular especially when the water is being released.

The dam itself is great and you must visit from it's top. Excellent view and magnitude of the construction. Then all around the dam you have plenty of nautical activities places and hotels and resorts and small spots. Plan a weekend to visit it all around... The nature, the water sports activities, the small river beaches. Very good to recharge... More
