Canoeing & Kayaking Canoeing & Kayaking at Roberts Creek Park
 Roberts Creek Lake is a 300 acre impoundment of adjacent Red Rock Lake, but there is no direct waterway link between Roberts Creek Lake and Red Rock Lake. Roberts Creek Lake makes for good canoe, kayak and paddle boarding due to the length, 1.5 miles, and the relative narrow width, average of 1/4 mile, that keeps the water relatively protected from most wind directions, along with several small bays that add up to approximately 5 miles of shore line to explore. The lake has a "No Wake" restriction for power boats that also creates a safer paddling experience and is easily accessible for paddling boats from the East Boat Ramp.

Fishing Fishing at Roberts Creek Park

 300 acre Roberts Creek Lake offers good fishing opportunities all year round whether fishing from a boat, from shore or through the ice when conditions are suitable. Two boat ramps allow easy access to launch, all boat motors are allowed, but a “No Wake” restriction is enforced. Predominately, fisherman are targeting Black/White Crappie during the open water season and through the ice in winter, but Largemouth Bass and Bluegill are also abundant and sought after by anglers. During the open water season, those seeking to catch Catfish will find good success also. Lake Red Rock, a 15,000 acre Army Corp reservoir adjacent to Roberts Creek Park, offers an additional opportunity for Crappie, Catfish and Largemouth Bass; along with, Walleye and White Bass.


Hunting Hunting at Roberts Creek Park
