An extremely beautiful lake, with mountainous views as well as diving boards and slides in a sectioned area for a cheap price. The water is warm and very nice to swim in.

At the entrance to the lake there is access to the lake plus areas where you can have a picnic, however, all around the lake has spots you can picnic and access the lake quite easily. Beautiful place, enjoy!
