This 3,800-acre lake, in the northwest corner of the state, offers conventional boating and fishing during the warmer months, and ice fishing once safe ice is available. Over 65 miles of shoreline provide plenty of places to wet a line while fishing from the bank or from a boat. Various types of rental boats are available at the lake. There are boat launch ramps for public use, and more than a half-dozen marinas on the lake. Camping, RV parks and lodging options are available at, or nearby the lake.
