If you love the outdoors and anything that goes along with it. This place is an awesome place for that. From fishing to fitness, there is something you can do here. No swimming tho, but you can tube at your own risk.

I just drove through it and there were at least 6 people out walking the trail in spite of 40 degree weather. It's a great place to relax.

small lake, but very clean. Nice trail around the lake and a trail leading up to it. You can also take the trail through town and connect up with another bike path.
