Country Camping

If you want to go out in the country and do some tent camping this is the place!

The lake has been drained and dredged and is slowly filling back up. It’s pretty spacious and has lots of room for tent camping. I wouldn’t bring an RV here.

There are bathroom facilities by the lake area and the camping area which is near the back.

The fishing here used to be really good with catfish, bluegill, bass. They do allow boats (electric motor only), kayaks and canoes. I haven’t fished here since they updated the lake.

There are hiking trails and one that goes to a back pond. There is a butterfly garden and playground for the kids to explore. There is also a shelter to have parties with picnic tables.

It’s nice that’s it’s been updated and cleaned up.
