This is just a wonderful and beautiful place nature has created. Lake is absolutely a wonder. And it is filled with fish. What more could a fly fisherman ask for.

It’s a serene setting suitable for walks, kayaking or canoeing and fishing. Hot springs are nearby. The folks fly fishing we’re doing well when we were there.

One of my favorite lakes in Central Oregon for fishing. Great catch and release lake for Rainbows and Brown trout. If you're going to keep fish try the Kokanee instead.

We visited the lake after going up to Paulina Peak. It was uncrowded and beautiful. There were other people there in campers and small boats and it was a very relaxed casual atmosphere. You can rent boats, fish, picnic or just relax in a beach...More

So sorry, didn't get this message until now. I did see quite a few people riding bikes but one would surely want to watch out for the traffic through the park grounds/camping areas.

Yes, just be mindful of park and campground traffic...they don't always go through there at pedestrian/bike speeds.
