  • I visited the lake on a mild day in mid-March. The air was smoky and the sky stained from nearby forest fires, but the land itself was beautiful and the lake serene. Very few patrons visiting, which was fine with me. Saw a group of 6 deer about an hour before sunset which really highlighted the experience. I'd love to see this place in the fall.
  • Great trails! Be aware!! We (my two small dogs and myself) ran into a pack of about 8-12 wild boar! Eeeek! Lots of rooting in the muddy ground gave us a heads up that they were around. But WOW! Trails were awesome!
