“Great afternoon trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Don't expect beautiful sandy beaches when coming to Arcadia Lake, but this is a great spot to come to if you are looking for somewhere to relax and swim, fish, boat, or camp. I spent the afternoon and enjoyed a picnic and a bit of swimming. Since most people seemed to be at their campsites or on their boats, it made the picnic areas near deserted, and provided for a nice private time to eat and swim. Absolutely loved it. Not the most beautiful, but I will take the more secluded feeling to just relax over having to fight crowds to get a spot at a more scenic place.

“Nice local lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a nice lake for picnicking, camping and boating. It can get crowded on the weekends. There is no restaurant, so bring your own food and beverages. There are fun playgrounds and beaches for kids and covered picnic pavilions.

“Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have not caught a fish here in 13 years. None worth keeping anyhow. The lake is small and can feel crowded on a boat. However, it is peaceful if you just want to get outdoors. Reserve your spot early. Don't expect to show up Friday night and have a spot available.

“Family Camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We took the kids to this lake and they had a blast, we were at the primitive area. We set up camp and the camp sites have enough distance between than that we have your privacy. We camped right in front of the water and there wasn't that many trees so we were able to fish right in front of our camp site. The beach area was also very pleasant, the water is very clean and was nice and warm. Cops do patrol the area and keep things quiet which was awesome. The kids camped, fished, went swimming, picked up wood for the camp fire and had an awesome camping experience. We all had a blast, I am not sure what everyone is gripping and complaining about, everyone there was just pleasant and having a great camping experience, mostly families with children. We look forward to going back and making this lake and camping area a regular on weekends. Oh it was hot during the day but in the evening it was nice and cool, clear sky full of starts and it was awesome weather for night fishing, also in the early sunrise, it is beautiful site over the lake.
