This is one of the pleasantest lakes around! I was here in November 2012, when it was a little cooler and a lot less crowded. I think a lot of the crowd is due to the long President's Day weekend, so a lot of folks will leave on Monday, maybe even tomorrow.
I chose the same place I had stayed in that last time because it is high up on a hill and has a great view of the lake.
I rode my bike down to the other campground area and took this photo.
Unfortunately, they don't even let you walk over the dam.
