In the Lake’s southwest corner is a big marina, a newly refurbished restaurant and even some lakefront cabins for rent, so perhaps now is the time to consider checking it out

One of the least known of US government agencies is also the oldest!

In 1807, Thomas Jefferson signed a law authorizing a survey of the U.S. coast, leading to the establishment of the U.S. Coast Survey – the predecessor of NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Its mandate was to survey the coast and inlets of our navigable waterways for safe navigation.
