“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Enjoyed taking family photos here. The views are awesome.
We did also rent kayaks on the Frisco side marina and enjoyed kayaking a couple of hours. Would recommend calling ahead to reserve during the busy season. We didn't but if we had a larger group then we would have been in trouble. They have canoes as well. We did not go on a guided tour but didn't feel we needed that. In the morning the water was pretty calm. The water is cold and there is no swimming here. Other options included boat rentals or single person paddle boats.

“Breath taking views”

Our family went to the lake for a family photo shoot for our reunion. Great place for pictures & a picnic. Not much shade though.

“Take the Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

This is a great spot to take kids as they have playground with a lot to keep them busy. It's also near dining options and at times as life music in the band area.
