This is a state park and there are entrance fees to pay. Fees depend on whether you're a day user, or camping overnight. Lots of wildlife to observe. Some years it's a huge lake, and some years not so huge, but there is always water. Depending on the time of year, and whether you are there on weekends or mid-week, there are power boats in the lake as well. But skirting along the shore is the best way to kayak and enjoy this body of water.
