1) What It's Like

It's just a pier people fish on with some cypress trees and a nice view of cypress trees all along the lake. The lake in general had somewhat of a birding reputation but not really getting how that is the case from couple stops we made.

2) Kinds of Birds

Only saw grackles.

3) Wildlife

There are probably a few alligators in there.

4) Amenities

Boat ramp. Don't recall if there was a bathroom.


When we arrived there were some locals fishing - got the impression they knew what they were doing. It is a pretty view around the lake - not a lot of buildings. And that is about all there is to it. Pier with a view.
