Lakes and Fishing
There are several lakes at the park that make for some excellent fishing. The
ponds are stocked with bass, catfish, bream, white perch, sunfish, black perch
and alligator gar. You can catch these fish with a variety of bait both live and
Many of these fishing ponds may
have alligators in them. The ponds back by the area of the water park are the
main lakes where an alligator may bee seen. Do not feed the alligators. It can
become dangerous if people feed the alligators and they get use to humans. Most
of the gators in the wild will swim from people. If they find that people mean
feeding time then they my get more aggressive and not fear humans. This can
poise a danger if they get use to being fed and will actually come toward you.
Believe you do not want a 6 to 8 foot gator as your friend.
There are several shelters
around the lake. BBQ pits and picnic table included.
Walkway around part of the
lake by the water park. Great place to catch fish because of the
long shoreline you have available.
