Great view! The sunfish monument was an added treat for the kids. Lot's of parking and easy to navigate with a large travel trailer. Looked like there was a popular restaurant across the street, but we didn't have time to check it out.

We got here late at night, and didn't get to see the lake. It was surrounded by construction but it was a nice little photo op

We stopped here on our way from Madison Wi to Austin Mn. The fish was fun but the surprise was a beautiful, peaceful gazebo with the most amazing panoramic view of the lake. We didn't want to leave and wished we had packed a lunch...then we turned around and saw the Blue Moon restaurant. It had a wonderful deck with a view of the lake and fantastic food! Perfect day!
