The lake has six public recreation areas featuring hundreds of acres of forest lands, wildlife, walking trails, campsites and boat slips. Outfitters also offer paddleboats, jet skies or boats to help you make the most of your experience.
Whatever the season, the Lake Region has a special appeal. Visitors to this region will want to venture through a wild animal park, play a round of golf, ride the rails of history or even try horseback riding.
