Spent many hours at Mittry Lake. We swam there on Sundays and hunted and fished there alot. Be sure to check out the "nazi bridge" as we called it when we were kids. I have many wonderful memories from there

This lake area appears to have been developed to allow access to the water for fishing and light boating. Rock jetties, now well overgrown were created into the lake to allow access to deeper water for those without a boat or kayak/canoe. The attraction called Betty's Kitchen on the maps is under reconstruction (after a fire?) so is inaccessible and... More
