Gorgeous gem of a lake. Hidden little coves with beautiful waterfalls, clean water and shorelines and breath taking views. Stunning.

Lake Glenville is absolutely gorgeous. We rent nice pontoon boats from Trillium and always have a blast. It is a perfect ski lake. The water is gorgeous. The staff at Trillium is awesome.
