Whitehall Reservoir harbors several islands and protected bays, making it seem larger than it is. It takes half a day or more to explore all the various passageways surrounded by gorgeous forests. Islands contain unusual tree species for this latitude. Avoid this popular lake on busy summer weekends.

Nice, large body of water to paddle around for a half day. 4 stars because the marshes I had been told about were not too big, and you couldn't paddle through much of them. Nice relaxing paddle though. Gets busy after 1:00.
