I have visited many times. A small peaceful lake that is perfect for picnics, walking, fishing and paddling. I take my kayak and paddle around by myself.

This park is nestled away and has some paved trail, some dirt trail, some deciduous trees and some evergreens. Something for everyone. Check it out if you are in the area.

Beautiful, peaceful, relaxing lake park in middle of Peters Township. Safe and well maintained by the township. Trail can get a little muddy in some spots from rain but that's Mother Nature for you!
