  • Although it’s been around for some time, they are constantly maintaining and improving the grounds. They stock the lake with trout twice a year. They have a very nice Fourth of July celebration. A very nice Christmas light display. A very clean and accommodating campground. Numerous shelter houses available to rent for events, both open and enclosed. The landscaping is very nice, especially the Ted Ensley garden area !
  • A beautiful lake to visit if you are near, The Ted ensley gardens are very nice. If that is not your speed the lake features a few playgrounds, A golf course and a paved trail that loops the entire length of the lake. The parks department or whoever runs the upkeep are doing a great job.
