Lake Jennings Park campers are just a few steps from some of the best fresh water fishing in the County and beyond! Fishing is available from the shore below the campground seven days a week or by boat during regular operating hours (Note: The lake is closed to boating Monday thru Thursday, except holidays).

Lake operating hours are 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. See the weekly fish report for time change during night fishing season.

A fishing permit and license are required. If you are looking for a great place to drown worms or just kick back, try Lake Jennings, the close-in lake that feels a hundred miles away.
