I fish here a lot and if you have kids who lake to fish this the lake for you. It has a trail around the lake, camping, tons of fishing docks, and a restaurant and a bait shop right by the lake. It has awesome sized bass, catfish, crappie, bluegill, and of course 5 to 15 lb rainbow trout. They also have some good sized redear. The rainbow trout I have caught have been up to 20 lbs, it's lake lake Michigan rainbow trout down here! The catfish can be very large.
