Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 18 Awesome fishing by Savetheparks001
These small but very deep lakes have some seriously big fish in them. Great for canoe fishing. very remote feeling and easy to access . come during the week and you will likely have the entire place to yourself. The crew that maintains this area does a great job despite the horrific lack of respect and funding for nature the state of Illinois has. The place is run down and often used as a garbage dump by some visitors but still worth a visit.
March 22 good place to visit. needs work to acces by Walnut dude.
i cought my largest bass in 10 years here. the place needs lots of work, but i guess we will have to wait untill the state can pay its bills.
