Get a taste of lake life! With more than 40 miles of shoreline, the lake provides space for families and friends to gather and enjoy a day at the lake any time of year.
Host a family reunion in one of the group picnic areas. Pick one of three launch ramps to slip your boat into the cool waters for a day of skiing or tubing. Watch a colorful parade of sailboats race by in the spring and summer. Take a hike during the spring to see the foothills in wildflower bloom.
