Buzzing in summer, beautiful all year, this must-see oasis is a recreation destination.. Overview Countless alcoves along the lake give up the treasures of this 18,000-acre, man-made lake. Granite ledges and sandy beaches studded with fool's gold are beautiful. Sunset brings stunning pinks, gorgeous purples and spectacular golds. Activities abound, including scuba diving, rafting and skiing (rentals available). Find a perch to watch fishermen catching trout and sturgeon or ski boats at Beal's Point jockeying for ramps.
The Experience More than 4 million people visit this multipurpose park annually, many of them with boats. You'll be mixing with serious fishermen, families and bikini-clad coeds, all enjoying the cool water.
