One of the area's best kept secrets is the Lake McSwain Recreational Area. It has all the great features of the other recreation areas including a marina, store and food service. It is located just six miles from the town of Snelling and offers great fishing, and family-friendly picnic spots and campsites.
Lake McSwain hosts a large variety of trout species, and offers an excellent opportunity to catch daily bag limits and large trophy fish. Trolling and shore fishing are popular successful methods for pursuing fish species.
Whether you enjoy fishing, swimming, hiking or just relaxing under a tree, there are many good times to be had by spending the day at the lake.
