The staffs are extremely helpful, but obviously, they have to call up a special guy to explain to me why there is nothing to see for me. I got it, this is not a place for foreign tourists. Probably not even for locals... some equipment is not in working conditions... all captions are in Portuguese.
They tried hard, but there are some lacks of maintenance. Do not come here.

The area surrounding the lake is safe and pleasant, day and night...
