“Small serene lake about 10 minutes and a couple turns from the Airbnb location. There is a park office, platform with chairs and tables, parking area and docks where people can launch kayaks, rowing boats (skulls), and motor boats. The lake is relatively small, so it doesn’t usually get too busy. You can go boating and fishing here, but there isn’t swimming allowed since it’s utilized as a secondary backup water souce for the county. ”
