We enjoy kayaking here. Lots of islands to explore or have a lunch. Also the East Branch Tully River is a nice trip up and back.

Very beautiful and clean lake.. Lots of islands to stop on, beautiful scenery. I have seen quite a few beavers swimming along my kayak. Make sure after you are done kayaking to visit doanes falls which is just up the road. There are a few nice waterfalls which is about a 1 minute walk from the parking spot. There are 3 separate falls to view, and lots of hiking trails that lead down to tully.
