We live just a few miles from the lake and can just drive out to set and relax or fish. We can take a picnic and spend the day relaxing.

We visit this lake every year while we are camping at the Chickasaw National Park. The concrete trail that goes all the way around the lake is the most peaceful and beautiful walk anywhere.

The lake is not overly large but the area that surrounds it makes it so much better. It's very tranquil with the wildlife sounds and the breeze. A great stop to just relax and forget for awhile.

We love to walk or bicycle the paved trail that runs completely around the lake (see the picture above). Our family has great picnics there. We enjoy kayaking there, especially when we paddle up the stream that feeds the lake. Good fishing and swimming, too.

Very pretty lake would be perfect for kayaking if you were starting out. Very clean and lots of runners on the running/hiking trail.
