There are two lakes on this gorgeous east Texas, tree lined property. You may fish either lake during your trip. Both lakes have the hallmark east Texas tea colored water.

East Lake is 21 acres and was built in 1983, and water depth up to 14 feet near the dam. There is a creek channel and submerged timber that line the creek in the center of the lake. You can bank fish approx half of the lake, but is best fished from a boat. The lake record bass is 11 lbs. There is a jon boat on this lake

West Lake was built in 1986 and is 13 acres in size. This lake is surrounded by trees on the south and west side of the lake, protecting it from the predominant SW winds. Most of the lake is 5-7 feet deep with water depth up to 12 feet. The lake record bass is 13 lbs. Again, about 50% of the lake can be fished from the bank, but best fished from a boat. There is a club jon boat on the West Lake.

The pathway to the lake is not well traveled or marked and may be challenging to find for new visitors. It may also be washed out, use caution. Please call or email the club office if you need any assistance.
