Natural Feature
“In the summer, its a great place to be, but get there early or you may have to park far away, but usually it's not too bad. You can also go later in the day like 5pm and still get a swim in. Walk the dogs around the lake too. or go in the off season for a walk around the lake and just experience some peace and quiet”
