There are great picnic spots with tables all along the lake. We enjoyed our lunch and were joined by a little chipmunk for entertainment. It was a beautiful lake and nice and relaxing.

This lake is huge!!! Another beautiful lake. We stopped to go fishing. The fishing was good. Large mouth and small mouth bass. Oh yes and cat fish. We were glad we stopped and checked it out.

My husband and two of our boys fished here one morning when we stayed at Custer State Park. It was a gorgeous spot. They only caught one little bass, but they really enjoyed it. There were a few other fishermen out there that morning too....More

What a nice little gem when you first enter Custer State Park. Pack a sack lunch and drive the perimeter until you see a good shady spot. There is no overnight camping allowed, so it is very peaceful early in the morning.
