  • Lake Shawnee is such a Beautiful place. They have great walking trail/path that have 1/4 miles markers making it easy to track your distance. Also, they have a magnificent garden area (Ted Ensley Garden) that is great to visit, especially when the tulip's are in full bloom. There is so much more beauty that can be described about Lake Shawnee that this comment section cannot withstand it all. A must see place.
  • What a beautiful lake. There's a trail for riding and biking. You can fish, boat or just settle and meditate. There are shelter houses for rent and playground for kids. Pack a lunch and make an afternoon of it. There is an RV park on site as well.
  • Beautiful place. Was there for the Huff 'n Puff Balloon Rally. Enjoyed it very much
  • Very nice. Great walking or riding sidewalks all the way around with care in the landscaping. Awesome baseball complex. Great golf course & campgrounds. They have nice clean playgrounds all around, paddle boats, a swimming beach. Its large & spacious enough for many event to be held there.
  • Great place for family gatherings. Multiple play grounds, bbq pits, picnic areas that are both sheltered and open. Docks for fishing, boating, paddle boating. Camping/RV park available
