For all these lakes, the description of what to expect is fantastic. You will know immediately if the lake is accessible for strollers, kids, how the water is, what activities you can do there, whether there are picnic tables, washrooms, all of it.

What I like most about this book as well as the comprehensive description is the top ten lists. Top ten lakes for swimming, for children and families, for nature, for accessibility, for bicycles and more.  This gives you a really great at a glance idea of where you can visit with the kids in tow.”
