Recreational opportunities abound. Whether you enjoy the feel of a 20 inch rainbow trout on the line, the breathtaking view after a hike to Bluff Point, or sitting around the campfire with friends, these opportunities and more are available. Wildlife viewing, camping, picnicking, swimming, playing volleyball, and water skiing are also popular summertime activities. During the winter months popular activities include ice fishing, snow machining, dog mushing, skijoring, and even staying at a rustic cabin when the temperatures can drop to well below zero.
