Waterboo Lake is a great name, but you did not come for the name, you came to get away from it all, and this place delivers solitude in spades. This 10 acre lake is nestled in an isolated valley of a small mountain. There is a long arm that runs several hundred feet into the mouth of two dry creeks. This arm has a 5 to 7 foot deep channel that runs the length of the arm. The lake has depths to 12 foot and the deeper water is on the cliff side. This lake is perfect for anyone wanting to camp. There is a single 110V outlet for anyone needing electricity. You will likely have no cell service here.

You will need a small SUV or something with more than a car height clearance to navigate a usually dry stream bed during your 2.7 mile drive to the lake. Go slow over the rugged stream bed and if we have had more than a couple of inches of rain, expect the stream to have water. You do not need 4 wheel drive.

Fishing limited to afternoons (1/2 PM) during duck season.
