Awesome. My late father and I went almost every weekend. Started taking my son when he was younger with his grandpa. Fish there all the time. Never been skunked. Camped here as well. Great place to get away. Awesome

Very picturesque, especially before sunset. Visited in the summer when the weather was mild and sunny, and saw people fishing, playing in the water, and taking leisurely strolls.

We love going to Chain Lakes. In the winter we go for ice-fishing, in the summer we love to walk around the lake, camp and the kids love the play ground.
