The view is amazing. You can have a trip with some boat Or canoe. There are Little places Where you can buy food Or drinks. Sadly, there is a lot of garbage in the lake. more »

Beautiful view. Crowded with people and parked cars. Take first parking possibility. Better on bike to come. Attention - bears near roads and some tourists feed them.
Great views. Best part was taking a look over the edge of the dam. Only disappointing part was seeing a good bit of litter around the area
