Lake Wilson is small, but a nice place for a walk, fishing, small powerboats or kayaks/canoes. There is also a disk golf course laid out around one side of the lake.

Believe it or not...Lake Wilson is where I learned to ice skate...You can run a boat or fish the lake. But mostly its older guys sitting in cars flashing lights...looking a casual encounter. Its is still nice to walk over the dam bridge.
