Fun day trip for family. Fishing, paddle boats, snack stand and beautiful surroundings. Great way to spend time together away from the hub bub of town.

There are quite a few ducks at this beach and a nice trail for walking around the lake. Some people come here to fish or have a picnic. On a nice day, come here and relax. The environment is nice!
