This lake is notorious for strong afternoon winds and few places to get off it. The water is cold with few other boats around for rescue. Do not take any inexperienced people on a trip like the one you are talking about. Paddlers need good bracing, spray skirts, etc and experience with large waves.
My uncle tells the tale about his trip up there in a canoe many years ago. He feared for his life and had nowhere to get off the water.
