    Lake Hope

    The lake is horse shaped and man made. I am not sure what exactly the original purpose of the lake was, recreation or irrigation as the surrounding area was once all farm land. In fact my great grandfather had a farm here not to far from the lake (which is how the family started traveling here to begin with...) You would most likley want to drive to the lake from the lodge since the beach is on the otherside of the lake, but there are alos alot of hiking trails that lead down to the lake from the lodge and cabins. At the beach you can not only swim, but rent row boats and get fishing bait.
