We spent a week near the reservoir camping and fishing and had a great time. The resevoir has two full service marinias with boat rentals and guide services there's also many bank fishing access points.

Who doesn't love the deep blue of this large lake? So clean and lots of places to camp. There is even a shower for $3 by the marina!
