The lake and the beach are very nice! Sometimes the water isn’t very clean. Often times the beach is littered with goose droppings. The beach area can sometimes be crowded in the summer. The trails are worth it though! Lots of mountain bikers and trail runners frequent the trails. Strouds is a great place to rent a paddle board, kayak, canoe, or pontoon. There are pic nic tables, a beach volley ball area, and bathrooms. The bathrooms are sub par but all you would really need anyway.
