Didn't use the actual faciliites at the lake, but we entered the grounds and toured the faciliites. Looks like a great place for swimming, canoeing, and just relaxing and having fun! Was a very clean area with very clean bath house and restrooms!

Another huge price increase. There was hardly anyone there today on a perfect summer day. Guess it's been priced out of the ball park. We used to come almost every week. Can't do that any more.

This lake has something for everyone. Sandy beach, shallow to deep swimming. High dive, canoes, rope swings. Sun shade.

One of the biggest attractions at the lake is the swing into the water! Just a ton of fun for any kid of any age!! Big tubes are available for cheap all day rentals as well as canoes and kayaks at half hour rental prices!...More
