There is no place like it in the midwest. Pick any spot that suites your needs whether it be next to the water or in the trees. It is a great lake for boating, jet skiing, beach cruising, camping, parasailing, kite boarding etc. Definitely my favorite place to go.

One star just for the location of the point in the app. It’s at least 10-20 more miles to the camping sites.

Was staying at a hotel nearby a couple years ago and someone told us we had to stop here. Would’ve never expected how beautiful it is. The lake is huge!!! Awesome for a day trip, and even more awesome because you can camp right on the beach!! Everytime we take a road trip and are driving by we always stop and camp a night here!! The location on this app is not accurate so use google maps. Love this place
