The lake is great with many walks around it and good areas for picnics, wouldnt waste money on the visitor centre however there are lots of free ruins etc around the local area, dont bother with fishing the lake most fish are now gone.

Did not get to the visitor center but we did stop at some of the sites. This is something to see especially if you are into history. An awesome sight to see structures from 2000bc.
