Description:

The lake impounds approximately 40 acres and is characterized by gradual sloping shoreline, with a shallow west end. There are 25 acres of land adjoining the lake, all are open to hunting including the lake. The very small wildlife area includes the riparian zone around the lake and small patch of native grass.

Primitive camping is allowed at the lake but vehicle access is limited. Fishing piers, fish feeder, boat ramp and a restroom are available on site. No water is provided at this area.
