  • Check off another fulfilled fantasy! -- gathered a bunch of friends, rented a six-eight-person pontoon boat ($50 hour), and totally relaxed while floating/paddling on the 115-acre lake at Independence...  more »

  • Beautiful venue both inside and outside for a wedding and reception. Gorgeous gardens, intimate and photogenic. The customer service from security to waitstaff was stellar. I can't say enough about how nice the waitstaff Was that I encountered. The whole event ran smoothly and it flowed easily for all guests from one moment to the next. This is a venue worth checking out for anyone looking for a wedding spot!
  • You cant go wrong if you are planning to visit this place. There is something for everyone (all ages) either you come single or as a couple or with Friends or with Family. I recommend this place for anyone who want to go out, relax & have fun.
  • Wonderful place to hike, bike ride or cross country skiing or to go to the beach. Great park for the kids and you can rent various boats. And there is a restaurant, if there was a hotel it would be a resort. Great place!
  • Pretty place for a wedding. The guests may get rained on. The lake looked like it had a nice swimming are and some boats, kayaks, and canoes to rent. The walking paths are well maintained and have nice gravel.
  • Beautiful place, beautiful water, boating and trails around it. Great options for activities, boat rental, bike rental, fishing, swimming beach etc. I wasn't happy that it costs $10 per car if you aren't a Lake County resident. Only $5 on weekdays but I probably won't get there other than a Sunday. Also we really went to fish and they require you to throw everything back which was a disappointment as well.
