This is a very nice, inland lake that is rather different. It is very beautiful, nice clear water and growths in the bottom of the lake that are made by the surrounding active geysers. They just keep the water a little warmer and add minerals...More

We took a scenic boat ride this trip. It was very enjoyable. Our crew was informative and entertaining. We’ve also done a fishing charter on this lake at a different time. It’s so large and beautiful...one of our favorite places

This lake is huge. Looking out towards the lake from the Lake Hotel, it is hard to make out features on the far side of the lake. As such, it is hard to use the word scenic to describe the lake. It is nice to...More

As others have said, it may be difficult to get there, but if you can (and tough it out), I suspect it would be really beautiful. No waterfalls, I imagine.
