What a beautiful lake! Perfect for a morning walk or for a short visit. We made a walk around the lake in the morning fog and it was amazing. Warmly recommended!!

Great for a day at the lake (they offer a sandy beach, boat rentals, dock, concessions, restrooms and playground) or a night of camping. Beautiful area as well, close to attractions in Bethel, Woodstock and beyond.
