Mirror Lake is a private spring fed lake and great for swimming, kayaking, and fishing. The beach has a nice sand bottom for wading and there is a water slide and a large raft attached to the dock for water fun. A rowboat, a kayak, and a canoe are provided with the rental for paddling or rowing around this beautiful clear lake. Mirror lake is stocked with trout as well as other species of fish, so bring your fishing equipment and see if you can catch your dinner, delicious cooked on the gas or the charcoal grill by the cabin.
