This beautiful lake is just past Natural Bridge State Resort Park on Hwy 11. As you round the curve by the campground the lake is on the opposite side of the road. Tucked in and away so neatly that it is easily missed.
Once on the water, you are totally surrounded by a gorgeous, dense forest. I love how quiet it is. The only sounds I hear are the rustling of the leaves from a gusty breeze, water lapping against my kayak and birds singing their songs.
The lake is around 95 acres which makes it a nice couple hour float. If you enjoy fishing, I have seen some giant bass and decent size crappy in here.
It is a trolling motor only lake, which is fine with me. I will be the first to admit that I am a wimp when it comes to choppy or fast moving water. I love the peacefulness of calm waters.
And then we come to this picture. The farther back you go the more clear it gets. This area freaks me out! I guess I have watched one to many scary movies. I could look over the side of my kayak and see a good 10' down. When the water is that clear and I can't see the bottom?? Yep, freaked out.
But then all I have to do is look back up and see this view. Absolutely gorgeous! So since we are having crazy hot weather for September, what better time to get out on the water! Get your PFD (life jacket) on along with some suntan lotion and check this beauty out. Be safe and have fun!
