A must see if you like the outdoors. Not crowded, great fishing and pristine water. Highly recommended for it’s solitude and relatively calm water. Swimming in the summer offers a truly invigorating experience! Kids will love it!

My 3 siblings and I rented a houseboat for a 4 day vacation. It was an amazing time. It's bigger than I expected and because our houseboat was slow, we spent all our time on the western side of the lake. To get to Kettle...More
