“Love the geese”
Reviewed 14 December 2012

Love the geese and the river is so nice to sit and have a lunch. Everything is so pretty. Make sure you take your lunch and enjoy it with the river view.

“Relaxing Lake!”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

I've heard about this little place before but never went then did a 5k recently here and decided to go back with kids. What a great day it turned out during the week. Not crowded in morning got a little busier after lunch. The lake is man-made and nice to look for shore to shore and walked much of the shoreline. Can enter the water in many places and nice trees to shade most of the picnic tables. There is 9 course Disc Golf and can rent discs or bring your own. Lake allows kayaks and canoes (have some to rent on weekends in summer) but no motorized boats so makes it very peaceful:) Has a large pavilion and small covered playground and clean bathrooms along with some port-a-potties in other areas. Not too far off Interstate 10. The kiddos really enjoyed their time there as shallow water areas for them to play in and area to run around too. Fees are $5 during week and $8 weekends.

“Great day for the family, or a romantic day for a couple.”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

This lake is pretty nice for you and your family to go swimming, fishing, and having a picnic. There are public restrooms and porta-johns, trash cans and picnic tables. Also is a small playground for the kiddos. The fee is $5 per carload and that is for all day long (5am-midnight.) You cannot take any motorized boats or jetskis, but you can take a canoe, small sail boat or inflatable boat/floaties. Bring lounge chairs, bug spray, and maybe something to cover your food with because flies are everywhere. No lifeguards there at all and the water gets pretty deep. It's also very rocky so probably will need your Crocs. Parking is pretty good. We will be going back very soon! We enjoyed it!

“Usually a great place, except during extreme drought”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

The river is generally alive with the active ducks and geese, plus fish, but the extreme drought conditions have left it a bit stagnated and unattractive. Get back to it when it has had the life revitalized and you will enjoy a peaceful afternoon there.
