Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice paved path with views over the dam, not very long (2 miles total, maybe?). Lots of bikers and families, joggers. Bring sunscreen!

Nice walk along the top of the dam area - Paved across the top (in the sun) and it takes you to a wooded area trail. We did not go into the woods - just walked back across the dam (which wasn't a short walk), but the wooded trail looked very inviting.

I enjoyed the view, the paved trail, and watching others enjoy a nice time. It's a rather long trail, but very thought provoking. I didn't track it but its at least 1.25 miles one way. But you can't even tell. I was lead to a campground.

Lots of lake goers on boats and jet skis, lots of people fishing on the bank.

Not much to say. Nice views.

PACK it in, PACK it out. Please do not litter.

you can walk along the 'levee' for a bit, great views of the lake. There are a couple of spots to take a dip. There is also a boat launch, but not sure how it is to load. Area is kept up very nicely--no garbage on the ground and it was mowed and well maintained.
