About This Area

The Conservation Department purchased this 502-acre area in 1984, and the 71-acre lake was constructed in 1987-88 and stocked with fish in 1989.

The area is composed of cropland, old fields, native grass plantings, and timbered areas which together create habitat for a variety of wildlife species. Vegetation is managed using prescribed fire, mowing, and cropping to provide year-round food and cover for both upland and forest wildlife.

The area features disabled-accessible fishing, parking, and toilets. A boat ramp is located on the lake.
