Located in Clark County, this lake is a special jewel in the rugged landscape 19 miles north of Ashland. The drive around the south side of the lake (best taken in dry weather) is breathtaking. The lake is 300 acres in size. With a maximum depth: 42 feet, and average depth: 17 feet. Surrounded by 900 acres of public hunting land.

The lake contains good populations of largemouth bass, walleye, white bass, channel catfish, crappie, bluegill and carp. Channel catfish and walleye are stocked yearly to maintain these populations. Walleye numbers are moderate with fish collected up to nine pounds. The white bass populations continues to increase and there are good numbers of 1 to 2 pounders.
