5/12/07.  Nice day.  Rosemary and I were doing a photo tour of the Wallkill River, so we stopped here.  The river is pretty slow at this point on its journey.  Some nice views of the surrounding area from on top of the hill where the golf course is located.  The lake here was pretty busy with people fishing and paddling on the paddle boats.  The river itself was deserted of people.  It was pretty muddy in parts.   Patrick L.
