Nothing great in this lake - lot of tourist and crowd all around - more of commercialization and shopping around - its OK place to go around

if you reach there on weekend, be prepared for long queues to a boat ride. Also the motor boat system is very weird. Instead of charging some money per person. they charge per boat. so either u collect 8 people & share the boat with them or pay for the entire boat. the lake is nice...at least it is free from any water hyacinth--which cannot be said for bangalorean lakes. The lake is huge. U can see spotbill ducks roaming around. We reached at sunset & got some very lovely pictures. Also it gets very cold at evenings ..so pls deck up

The place must have have been awesome during the british raj and was so about 25 to 30 years back when I visited it as a child.The charm peeps through still but all the cropping up of commercial places around have spoilt the view.The overcrowded lake and the long wait was a little off putting but the view was good especially as the rains decided to awash ...the place.food courts are convenient...botanical gardens the dodabetta point...has changed ...some where the untouched simple beauty is lost..

Ooty lake is very big and beautiful. Boating in ooty lake is must during your visit to ooty. They close booking at 5:45pm. So reach by 5 pm at least. Food court is good and you get good pav bhaji , milk shakes and grilled sandwiches. Lot of small shops to where you can buy sweaters at throw away prices.

good location for boating with your family. water is bad and the life jackets they provide is of worst quality.i doubt whether they serve the purpose. average rating because of water and life jackets !
