Reasonable prices on rentals. Until I can afford my own kayak I'll keep renting here. There are so many places to explore this lake.
It's a good place to put a boat in the water.
Love kayaking from this point. Staff was so accommodating.
The lake itself is very pleasant between the mountains and it has some good shallow patches, where beginner swimmers can enjoy the water!
