The dam has been fixed so there is no issue there. i think somebody said the water is always dirty?? it is usually mossy after heavy rains like most lakes. but it is A LOT cleaner than Lake Panorama if you have seen that lake.
The only clean man made lake in this state is Sun Valley in southern Iowa because it's spring fed. Ponderosa is as clean as Panorama. It all depends on the weather and the quality of water coming in from the river.
Been boating on Panorama for 4 years now. Private lakes are a lot of fun. Enjoy your cabin!
I'll second what an earlier poster said about laying out a clean cut schedule for cabin usage.
