My wife & I LOVED in the fall of 2016. The biking was fun and hiking Buck Mountain Trail was exhilarating and quite a challenge, but the views and scenery from the top were well worth the effort. Bring water and a snack for the hike, and wear hiking boots for safe footing.

The views of the lake are stunning from the shoreline, or better still from one of the boat rides that take you out onto the lake. So peaceful and serene! A real gem.

What can I say to my whole childhood. This definately have changed, it is not quite the same as it used to be, but one never can forget the memories. ENJOY, it is one of the last of its kind. Wonderful world adults ( especially baby boomers), and young children with a new legacy

We went for the Winter Carnival. Unfortunately there was no winter weather. But the area is surround by mountains and is stunning with a little snow. I'm sure the fall must be outstanding.
