I love this area for wildlife viewing and walking, but all of that is possible without the boathouse. The boathouse could serve the needs of the community by housing a small coffee bar much like Springfield Public Libraries do. I’d be there nearly every morning...More

Instead of sitting on the couch we decided to go to the Lake and check out the trails. Lots of open areas for activities and trails to hike. Some nice views overlooking part of the lake from the bluffs. Kids saw all kinds of wildlife,...More

I'm not 100% sure on pricing but I know it's pretty cheap. They do it by chunks of time. Call the retail shop.
