Great place to visit for the day. Visiting in the week time and in Nov was a great idea. It was so peaceful. There are tables where you can sit and have a picnic.

Fascinating lake and forest scene. Easy to reach from Bolu city center. Has a nice trekking path by the lakeside. Avoid weekends if you worry about crowds.

Good for families with children. Reserved BBQ area in the place. There is a restaurant also. Nice walking road around the lake. Don't forget bring the camera. Enterance fee is around 2.5 $. May be overcrowded at weekends.

This lake is clean, the hills and forests beautiful, the place attractive and peaceful. Funny that nobody swims in lakes in Turkey, nor are there any boats on the lake, this makes lakes a bit "empty". We did some serious mountain biking around the lake...More

We stayed near here on a recent trip to Bolu. One afternoon we drove out to see the lake. It was extremely crowded with families having picnics and cook-outs. Our stroll around the lake was probably 2 miles and it was beautiful.
