The Lakes

The two lakes are Twin Lake  (6 acres) and Corner Lake (17 acres). The two ponds each about 2 1/2 acres in size we named "Pretty Pond" and the "Hungry Beaver Pond." The lakes are on the south end of the property and the ponds both on the north end.  Limited marsh grasses surround a portion of the open water which is ideal for the varied wildlife.  With these critical water resources, it greatly enhances the wildlife attraction. We have seen nearly 200 mallards lift out of the Hungry Beaver pond at one time.  

 

The water depth ranges upwards of 13-14 feet in the lakes and one of the ponds. Three of the four are spring fed. One of the ponds is also used to trap leeches for fishing.

 

In the late fall of 2017, we planted native wild rice seed in Twin Lake and Hungry Beaver Pond. We  hope to be able to harvest the wild rice as it takes root within the next few years and it will certainly benefit the wildlife.
