This lake has charcoal grills in almost all parking lots, to cook your fish that you caught on your trip. I started at the far south-west "step dam" that serves as the water inlet for the lake. I would highly recommend paddling back into the inlet it was calm and very peaceful and was really neat.
I had lots of close encounters with wildlife; deer, muskrats, minks, and lots of migratory song birds. The fishing was great, caught lots of small mouth bass, some large mouth bass, black crappie, and sunfish.
The "step dam" is a dam that has steps from top to bottom so put-in and take out are easy. The step dam is off Hwy 370. At I-80 Exit 339 in Nebraska go west on Hwy 370 cross a bridge and turn at the first left into the parking lot.
