Fantastic lake! Great boat rental facilities / fishing "store" at the boat launch. Posted sign said "closed" but gave a phone number to call, stating that they would be there in 15 minutes. We did, and they were! The area is well-maintained, and offered us plenty of entertainment for a day full of fishing! We'll be back!
