This 27 acre lake was completely drained in 2017 and then stocked in 2018. This allowed for new habitat including old cars, brush piles and large laydowns around the lake. The lake was stuffed with forage that included fat head minnows, red ear sunfish, coppernose bluegill and threadfin shad. Bass were added 6 months later with the finest genetics in the country.

There are two jon boats for members to use and a concrete boat ramp that can launch full size bass boats.


No special requirements.
