I was there over the weekend of 6-19 thru 6-21 2009. The bass fishing was excellent and the quality and quantity was very well. I probably caught and released over 50 to 60 pounds on saturday and sunday morning,two over 8 pounds. :] :] So by this I want to thank the parks people for taking such great care of the lake.The brush piles are in the right places and it makes great fishing.The only sore comment I have is,I sure wish I could get my own boat back on there again someday.But I do make do with the boats you provide and I HIGHLY appreciate you letting us use them.So thanks again and keep up the good work.I drive a chevy silverado,black,with a skeeter sticker in the back glass.Hope to see you all again soon.Have a good day!!!! :] :] :]
May 3Great fishing lake by Greg
This is a quiet relaxing area with good fishing in the lake and also the many ponds. The camp grounds are well kept but primeative.
Our cabins are located on my fourteen acres of ground next to Stephens State Forest in south-central Iowa located on the Chariton River bottom approximately 60 miles south of Des Moines in some of Iowa's best white tail and turkey habitat.
