Here are a couple of pictures I took the day I was there. Might make you want to take the drive even if its just for a picnic.
These were taken at Ferguson Point Picnic area in September 2007. If you plan a trip I suggest you don't do it on a holiday weekend. My wife and I tried it last Labor Day and there were so many people and dogs swimming in the lake, we just turned around and went home.
Till next time, remember: "A bad day fishing is better than any day at work".
