Cleanest most beautiful lake in the south by far. Scenic without the normal housing developments on most lakes. Great full service marinas. Huge lake and never feels crowded.

We rented a pontoon boat from AquaFun and spent the entire day on the lake. Beautiful lake and Mountains surrounding it. The water was great for swimming.
