The lake is just over three miles long, making for a 6+ mile round trip. I had very calm conditions upon leaving the boat launch, but at the turnaround point at the north end of the lake the winds picked up, kicking up moderate whitecaps. With a stiff wind coming head on and two foot chop I headed back to the launch site. The return trip took about an hour, and along the way I saw a few mallard ducks and what looked like an osprey over head. I had the lake virtually to myself on this April morning.
My understanding is that boat traffic dramatically increases in the summer months, making this lake a destination better suited for the shoulder seasons of spring and fall. Overall it was a great trip... though not as much wildlife as I expected. Nice day trip from the Portland area.
