Also available are an exercise course, roadside picnic tables, restroom facilities and benches for those who wish to stop and just enjoy the lake view. In addition, Higgens Point offers a group use area available by reservation April through October. From Bennett Bay area, the soaring Veterans Memorial Bridge on Interstate 90 is visible. Bald Eagle watching is also a popular activity in December and January.
