No Lake is ugly of course. But the surroundings of this lake and publo in particular are just not my idea of beautiful. The National forest area is my idea of beautiful. I like lush Pinophyta covered mountains and the mountains around this lake are...More

Be sure to check the website before you go. We go there only to learn the swim beach was closed and had been for months. Good news - there is plenty of water and other places in the park to swim. Do not go home!...More

This lake is gorgeous. No swim beach at this time. All kinds of boating activities available. Informative visitor center. No restaurant on site, nice spot for a picnic.

Nice place to camp. If your looking for big shade trees you may not find it. Lake is awesome, you can paddle board nice quiet coves away from everyone. Lots of fishing. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Can be hot. 95 last few days.

First of all, the online reservation system is not to be trusted. I looked FATHERS day weekend and it indicated there were several spaces available, only to be turned away when I arrived. So after the weekend was over I called on good old fashioned...More

No you can not swim anywhere in the lake, there is a facility in the park called the "Swim Beach", it is not on the lake at all. However, this facility is being upgraded this year, and should be very nice. The lake is far... More
