“Nice Quiet Lake”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a nice, clean lake where families can enjoy nature and not worry about excessive partying or huge boats that will swamp smaller boats. Majority of the boats you see on this lake are pontoons and bass boats. The fishing on this lake is great and there are several ramps around the lake that only charge a small fee to launch your boat. There are also swimming beaches at the state parks. The nicest swim beach we found was Thibaut Point. This is a Corp of Engineers lake so you won't find much in the way of lakeside lodging unless you bring a tent.

“Clean Lake”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is clean lake to fish and swim. We enjoy camping. This is a corp lake so there is only camping around the edge of the lake. There are hotels in Warsaw and Clinton and other cabins closer. Crappie fishing is great in some point in the spring.

Reviewed June 17, 2012

Never saw so many people catching fish. Places to walk around the lake were paved and well maintained.

“Loved the views!!!!!”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

There is an observatory you can visit. It has dinasaur fossils found in the area....a "look-out" tower with binoculars.....my kids had a blast. Also there are hiking trails all through the wilderness with old homes you can tours. It's absolutely amizing to see the history first hand.
