Tahu Recreation Area

/ 大湖風景遊樂區 提供

Spreading over a 10 hectares land, Tahu Recreation Area offers some of the latest recreational facilities, centering on the Tahu (Big Lake) area. The facilities include parking lots, restaurants, coffee shops, paddle boats, bamboo rafts, wharf, arch-shape bridge, fruit farms, round-the-lake walkways, and many more.
The pier area offers a variety of water sports in summer, such as boating and rafting. It is also an attractive place for bird-watching because waterfowl birds and migratory birds usually take their rests there. The best time for boating on the lake is at dawn or dusk during spring or fall season. Embracing by the morning mist on the lake and sunset golden rays at dust are truly blissful experiences. Due to its natural environment, there are many Taiwanese animals around, such as black swans, ducks, pheasants, formosan rock-monkeys, Indian great hornbills, gibbons, wild boars, ect.
Tahu Recreation Area has spacious campsites on both sides of the riverbanks. The environment is quiet that make one submerged in nature.
