Don’t Forget About the Kids

Kids always want to go fishing - and they can anytime, right off the dock! Our kids fishing dock is very popular. It is a great place to catch Bullheads.

Safety must be first! All children must wear life jackets and be accompanied by an adult while on the fishing dock.
