This tiny lake has parks at its north and south entrances. Camping sites, rv spaces, anc cabins for overnight stays. The bath house are well maintained. Plenty of picnic sites and swimming beaches make this a fun family stop.

Pet friendly but must remain on leash at all times. No dog park enclosure. There is a dog park located between the police station and Tractor supply in the city of Bastrop. It has a large and small dog area.
