    Favorite spot. Great hike in the summer. Wear shoes with great grips as coming down the bluff can be slippery. Don't recommend bluff hike while raining or when wet. 500ft quartzite cliffs. Great beach

    Don't plan on staying overnight. The rooms are straight out of the 80s and haven't been cleaned since then. Don't bother with lessons as most of the staff is unprofessional or sleeping on the job.

    Great lake to swim in, but the beach is more rock than sand. Watershoes recommended.

    If this one isn't on your list of muse-see's, it should be. Bring/rent a kayak, and if you have kids, they will love the beach area!

    Head to Jumping Rock on the West Bluff trail along the lake. It's through the second set of trees on the path. It's really fun.

    Awesome place in the state, especially for swimming. I recommend swimming off of the rocks though. Much funner. But be safe!

    Stay away from south shore if your wanting to swim. Lots of seaweed appearing and swimmers itch spreading like wildfire. :(

    Ask around for rock 8!!! Also a perfect sunset spot... It's a formed "rock sofa" on the crest of the south west bluff.
