Welcome. You will have a good time. Some benefits relate
to this being a "private lake" meaning it is owned and managed by
someone else than the Corpses of Engineers (unless there is flooding, etc.).
This affords more direct lake front properties and businesses.
While it is not a "LOTO", it is still a great place to visit or live.
The guys are right, it does get rough in certain areas, but
there are good coves to escape to.
