Five spring-fed lakes in Sherwood Forest give residents a chance to canoe, fish and swim in bracing mountain water. Swimmers often head for the smallest lake -Boot Lake, while the docks at Betty Kay and Trout Lakes prove irresistible to those looking for fish.
Small sand beaches provide a launch point for young swimmers, and playground equipment at Trout is a favorite spot for families.
Two Sherwood canoes are placed at each lake for use by residents. Each spring a lottery awards rack space for privately-owned canoes.
