There is two parts to Goldwater Lake Upper and Lower. As far as I know you can only drive to upper on pavement. Lower Goldwater is made from the runoff of the dam at upper. Upper Goldwater Lake is were you would go to rent boats or camp in a RV. This is a real scenic Lake that has trails wrapping around the entire lake that you can use to access all areas for fishing. You can catch largemouth, crappie, sunfish and catfish at both; if your lucky.
