  • We use the fishing docks at Richmond lake all the time. Always catch something. They are well kept and easy to access with close parking. Hot in the afternoon sun, but really nice in the mornings.  more »
  • This lake and it's amenities are just amazing that very few find it. It sprawls and has a youth camp with thousands of evergreen trees. Has a resort and restaurant -- excellent food.  more »
  • It's a nice place to get a break from the flat landscape that surrounds!
