Lake is quite clean and beautiful. Try going there during evenings, you might enjoy the fog. We avoided boat rides as no life jackets were provided. We enjoyed watching sunset near the lake.

Yes you can get parking space. However you need to find out proper place. If you go from 1st Jan to 1 March rush will be low as compare to rest of days of year.
