Sturchler Pit Area

The former 120 acre gravel pit area has been developed and contains picnic shelters, pit toilet, and playground equipment. Several plots of prairie grass have been established. The lake provides excellent deep pond fishing.  No firearms or bows and arrows are allowed but deer and pheasants can be driven.
