I have been here for short visits over the last 5 years. I'm always so impressed how remote and rugged in seems. Yet, so peaceful and tranquil. The folks at the State Park here do such a good job for all ages. The fishing in this lake is probably the best in the area. And the viewing of extensive wildlife is never in shortage. At both ends of the lake you'll also find very extremely experienced guides and also accommodations at Stone House Lodge and Cooper's El Vado Ranch.
