Surrounded by wooded shores and stocked with bass, carp, pickerel, and walleye, the lake provides a peaceful place to go fishing, kayaking, and boating.

Encompassing more than 5,800 acres of woodlands, the WMA offers a variety of hiking trails for guests to explore. One of the highlights of the WMA is the abandoned Hibernia Mine.

Upward of 30,000 bats hibernate here from the fall until the spring. Other highlights of the WMA include a beaver pond and a hawk watch from which guests can see some of the 12 to 15,000 hawks that migrate through the area each year.
