How close are you to the Shawnee National Forest?
How big is the Lake?
Docs Cabin sits on a small 6 acre lake built around 25 years ago.
Is there a lot of fish in the lake?
Yes, there is crappie, bass, catfish and bluegill.
Is there a boat we can use?
No, we only allow fishing from the dock or from the bank.
You can walk around about half of the Lake.
Can we keep what we catch?
We ask you to perform CPR! (catch, photograph and release)
There are no guarantees in fishing, some guests have walked down to the dock and on the first cast caught a "big one" while others have spent a whole week catching nothing but a few small ones, so our advice to guests is this; book your stay at Docs with plans to relax and getaway, not to catch the "big one" and we are most certain you will enjoy your stay.
