Lots of snags, don't know if there is fish here or not. Been here a couple time, still have yet to catch anything. A few jetties, but other than that not much for shore fishing.

Beautiful little park with a small lake. Unfortunately, the DNR had no money for upkeep. The shelter and picnic table on the north side are gone.

Just a boating and fishing area. No camping, picnicking, playgrounds, or beaches. Nothing.

The boat ramp on the south side, why can't the dock be aligned with the ramp? It sits at almost a 45° angle to the ramp. Been that way for 3 years now. Makes the south boat ramp unusable! Come on DNR, fix it!
