I enjoyed going to this lake.. on your way you get to see other little sites and when you get there you could do some canoe-ing on the water..

This is a pretty walk. I rated this average, but it has nothing at all to do with the lake or the path around it! Rather, it has to do with the bizarre behaviour of the park staff. My sister and I visited the Island for the purpose of hiking. We were self-guided and rented a car. Finding the location... More

I have never experienced anything quite like this. The breeze was very strong and the outside temperature was 19 degrees. The kayaking was closed that day because of the strong breeze and the clouds kept coming down and hiding the entire lake at intervals. When the breeze blew again it would totally clear it up and it was a great... More

The clouds were low over the lake, obscuring the mountains in the background. Mist drifted by and created some very surreal effects. It reminded us of the series "Lost". This was a fun photo shoot.

For travellers from overseas this is just a lake that we can see anytime in our countries! The information center by the lake was quite interesting and was worthwhile taking a look at!

Went here to have a look . It was misty and everything was closed if you are going you need to make sure it is open or take a boat or go on a hike nearby.

We walked around Freshwater Lake on a drizzly afternoon. That may have been a not so great idea as some areas along the trail were extremely slippery mud and very steep. We just laughed about getting all muddy though and had a fantastic time anyhow! Part of the trail is very easy, but other parts are very steep. I would... More

worth the stop for a couple of minutes, but there is nothing interesting in this place compared to other places in Dominica, can be skipped.

We came on a cool misty day and had an amazing walk. The vistas are spectacular and the up and downs, while challenging in wet times, are a good workout. Due to the weather, it had an otherworldly vibe, and it was a highlight.

Very green and lush and noticeably cooler than rest of island. The mountain tops are covered by the clouds revealing a substantial freshwater lake. It's truly a sight to behold.
