Beautifu but not clean

The park around was great but the water was smelly and so were the life vests given! Ouch . The boats seemed in good shape! The employees at the ticket counter though were a different story altogether - may be 'cause its govt owned, there were rude and uncaring

Kid friendly park and nice boating

Kid friendly park and nice boating but lake water is not much clean.So avoid playing with water even if you are boating. Kids will enjoy lot in a part next to boat house.

Decent Lake

Located in the center of the town, this lake is a decent place to visit. Walk around this lake and you can find many parks.Boating is quite expensive (Rs. 410) for motor boat. Partnering boats are also available. We went on weekdays so very few people were there around this keyboarding. But it was work spending time there.

Clean and simple

The Big Lake is at the center of the hill station and a major tourist attraction for boating. One can simply sit and relax in the park facing the lake and watch the other's having fun. It's like an old timer's picnic spot. The lake and the park both are pretty clean and there are plenty of eating joints and street food junctions just outside the spot.

Nice place to visit !!

We had been to Yercaud in the month of June. We went to the boat house at the lake on Sunday and had to return back due to mad rush. We finally managed to go boating on Monday which happened to be relatively crowd free. It is not a very big lake but quite clean. They have motor boats for groups, peddle & row roded by professionals. There is free parking available around the lake, but parking fee is collected if you want to park your vehicle near the boat house. We had nice time as the climate too was pleasant. You can find lot of food stalls at the boat house. A nice place to visit if you are at Yercaud !!

Big Lake, a normal one

This big lake is easy to find in Yercaud as most of the places are near by and small. I felt this place is not so attractive as other hill stations. Entrance fees is collected and for boat ride its too costly. An average maintained lake. When we entered at 10 am in the morning it was very hot and not a cool place during summer. If your looking a nice enjoyable place then I don't recommend Yercaud lake during summer.

Centre of attraction

The lake is the center of attraction. Boating is available of various types and rates. An hour ride for 2 will cost you less than 200 Rs. The people there makes sure of providing life jackets and thus makes the ride safe. Deer park, aquarium, horse riding, chat items are available next to the boat house. Overall you can spend around 2 - 3 hours there.
