This is a nice place to visit. Has some nice restaurants, coffee shops... its right by the lake and has some nice beach area and walking paths and of course has the hot springs.
This is probably the best area to see scenic views and certainly to see wildlife. Every time I have driven this road I have seen animals. Very highly recommended.
I have never been to a lake that vehicles could drive on and people could ice fish. Was cool to see. I will have to try it some day. We walked out on the lake which was cool enough. I think this place would be great in the summer. Was a very nice area.
