We were limited to two short trains, one near each entrance, due to nesting eagles. Scenery limited to beautiful, large oaks - some partially submerged within reservoir, & barren, yellow hills.

Very serene and beautiful. Lot of people were fishing here. We came just for few hours and did the boat ride. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Nature.
The Watershed is a great place to go fishing with state of the art docks that are wheelchair friendly beautiful ramps for you to get to the docks, you can rent a boat, Staff and the Watershed are five star.
