Sit overlooking the lake and breath in the air. Get a frozen custard after Doug's fish fry. Summertime at its best.

Pretty little town! Lake was crystal clear! Very beautiful! I heard there was a waterfall as well but I didn't see it!

“Lovely to look at or get out on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

The town has done a great job in making access to the lake available both with its public dock and the wonderful treed lakeside areas right in the center of town with benches or bring your own chairs.or lie under the shade trees.

“Dinner Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Took a spin on the lake on a dinner cruise and albeit the rain had a great trip. Beautiful area worth seeing from the water.
