Description - Excellent walleye fishing is supported by a relatively stable lake level and cool water temperatures. With most fishing done from boats, the protected marina offers convenient boat launching, regardless of the wind direction. Add shaded campgrounds and showers, and this park is a dream come true. In the autumn, hunters use this as a base camp to hunt pheasants and Canada geese.
