Largemouth, crappie, catfish, and bream abound. Recently, a lucky fisherman caught a 44-pound catfish here.

Great place for older kids to play and a really nice shelter for the young kids. It has a gate that locks, and lots of fun things for the little ones to do. Always clean.

The lake is very beautiful, and there must be fish in the lake, but I have not heard anyone brag about it..The fishing is free, they have a boat dock, restaurant and campground. The one good thing I have heard, its near Renfro Valley.
