I love this lake but wish it had a beach area for swimming. It’s still great for a lakeside picnic as they have made some improvements in recent years. The new park area is great, especially the area for small children.

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.
