The lake sits on the other side of this spit of beach and boaters, floaters and jet ski’s can be seen on this side of the lake. It just is an amazing scene as you enjoy an afternoon swim. The bay itself is not too deep and the beach extends all the way around the lagoon.

Be sure to pack picnic baskets since all the fresh air and swimming is going to make you hungry.
