Kayaking, boating, fishing, skiing.... get out there and do your favorite water sport of choice. The weekends get crowded so head out during the week if you can. If you have the money, rent a house boat for a few days. Peaceful, beautiful and serene.

Adam and Kaleb started our visit off right with their help and friendliness. The lake is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring its fingers then turning off the engine and enjoying the peaceful surrounds.
