Cute restaurant on Clinton Lake

Boondocks in the concession stand at the State Park on Clinton Lake. Don't let the "Bait" in the title scare you away. The food is always prepared to order and served hot. They have delicious deserts and ice cream too.

This is a very nostalgic place. It is near the Clinton Lake. From one side the boats can pull up, the other side people on the beach can order. There is inside seating.

We live very close but would travel much farther to eat at Boondocks!! We have never had anything bad. Our grandchildren love going here. Save room for awesome desserts and ice cream. Right on Clinton lake so the scenery is the best!
