Hunting/Fishing Info:

Fishing is catch and release only.  Pond stocking can be very expensive and this is the only way we can keep rental fees low. The pond is stocked with Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Bluegill Sunfish, and Golden Shiner Minnows.  Click HERE for info on the fish types.


We do allow pets with prior approval. They should be house trained with no history of eating doors, walls, cabinets, furniture, cabins, etc.  We prefer small dogs only, but will consider larger dogs and cats. Horses are welcome on the property.
