History of Lake Iroquois
In 1991-2, with the help of Local, State, and Federal funds,the land surrounding the Beach and fishing access was purchased. After the purchase of the property, a new snack bar and playground were built. More recently, by connecting several of the logging roads and trails, a 1.3 mile hiking trail was cleared, and is open to the public for free, even during Beach Hours. During the off-season, the Beach is a popular fishing spot, especially on spring nights when the Bullheads are biting.
