Did you know there are 2 lakes?
Veterans Lake is not as well known as Arbuckle Lake or Turner Falls but has plenty to offer including less people! Small fishing boats are permitted on the lake, jet skis are not. It is the perfect place to enjoy stand up paddle boards. The lake is almost 70 acres and has a 3 mile concrete walkway surrounding it which makes for great bike riding or a nice walk with a stroller. The area also offers benches for resting and other rougher trails in the general area. Lastly, the beauty surrounding the lake is wonderful.
