The lakes range in size from 2 – 25 acres and vary in depth from 12 – 50 feet. The lakes were dug in the 1990s as part of a lime rock mining operation. Freshwater species such as largemouth bass, bluegill, bream, shell cracker and catfish can be caught. Largemouth bass must be released unharmed but anglers are permitted to keep up to six catfish and 12 pan fish (bluegill, bream, shell cracker) per person per day. Canoes, kayaks and small jon boats can be carried down to the water and hand launched. Gas powered motors are not-permitted but electric trolling motors can be used.  A fishing license may be required.
