We had an absolute blast here we used paddle boards and canoes and had a nice trip around the lake we were able to jump off some Cliffs but be advised it is illegal..🎶 as long as I'm alive I'm a live illegal🎵🎶 but this is an absolutely fantastic Place rather you have a powerboat or a non-powered boat the views are breathtaking and almost looks like something out of Jurassic Park
