Here’s an amazing location for astrophotography! Views of the lake are to the south, so it’s a great location to capture the arch of the stunning Milky Way above the water. There’s a long jetty which makes an interesting subject.

Plus, if you explore around the lake, you’ll find an amazing array of landscapes for night time photography. You might capture the beauty of the stars above the trees and the reflections in the water.
