We only did lake Tarleton while in the area but plan to come back to do Lake Armingotn. This lake is nice and calm with no current and little waves. Motor boats and other water craft are allowed on the lake which does disturb the peacefulness of the lake. When we visited (on a Friday) we had the luck of seeing a large deer cross the lake right in front of us, and were told by a local police officer checking on the lake when we left, that there is a moose that comes there every morning for a dip in the lake, but you must get there around 6 AM before the crowd. The water in the lake is incredibly clear for one that allows gas powered equipment, it's so clear you would think it's okay to drink. There is only one island to stop on for a break, it is also a popular spot for the birds and is covered in their "leavings". There is also a youth camp on the lake, so there is usually a few other kayakers and canoeurs on the lake, along with a few tubers and water skiers. They do go in for lunch and other activities to allow some peace and quite for other visitors. We canoed around the perimeter of the lake and spent a good afternoon exploring and enjoying the water. Definitely an excellent day trip.
