I have enjoyed several sunsets, plus nice, long and quiet walks down there. In the summer, with little noise and warm temperatures, it is so relaxing. during the day you can climb the observation tower as well.

This marina is great for getting up close views of the lake. Parking is super easy. While the views of the lake are enjoyable, the actual marina itself is nothing special...just a plain concrete walk. I feel like there's so much that could be done...More
