The lake and surrounding area is beautiful. I highly recommed renting a boat or taking a tour on the lake. Sometimes the lake is calm and on windy days it is quite choppy.

While driving through town we stopped for Literally a couple of minutes for a picture by the lake and had a twenty dollar ticket on the car. Zero Grace period? Very unwelcoming.
