Fishing has been good all summer with very nice catfish being caught at this time. Fish that have been stocked at this time include walleye, large mouth bass, blue gill, catfish, and a variety of minnows. For you bow fishermen, there were plenty of carp already in the creek, so come enjoy!

Some of the park does remain closed for construction of the campgrounds. There will be 42 sites with water and electric and many other primitive sites available. There will be a large restroom with showers available in the campgrounds. Camping will be available in 2011.
