Nice, easy paddle. Pretty lake, two hour paddle to see all areas. Spotted many turtles sunning themselves, fish, lily pads, and pretty willow trees. There was, however, a dredging project going on and a large portion of the lake was off limits with a big pipe in the water. Fishing boats in the water, people very friendly.
