Fabulous experience today. Husband had double cheeseburger and loaded French fries. I had a BLT on toasted sour dough. Both enjoyed our meals. Topped it off with a fresh baked brownie with cream cheese frosting!! Can't wait to go back as food is great and view of the beach is, too.

Stopped in for lunch, it was very good. Watch out for the full shoe unless you are really hungry, it's a whopper. Burgers tasty, setting really cute.

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!
