This resivor is a great place to spend the day or stay for a few days. The state park is beautiful; cabins, tents and rv’s. Nice grounds and a enjoyable place for all your water toys.

Big reservoir, not many people. Gets a bit windy by the dam in the afternoon. Good size bass and trout, lots of crappie witch is my favorite to catch. Bring a kayak or boat for a great experience at the lake.
