Very nice scenery. The long winding road getting to the reservoir and our campground was a little treacherous driving with our big rig but presented beautiful vistas. We stayed at the Long Branch campground which was well maintained with nice views of the river.

There are plenty of paved roads to ride bikes on, as long as you follow the rules of safety- traffic goes through there frequently, but are required to go only 30mph. There is a seasonal restaurant at the marina.
