Description: A pretty little lake in Cumberland County co-owned by Deerfield Township and Hopewell Townships.  This was owned by the five Bostwick Brothers, who owned it from 1927 to 1067. This was bought with money left by local conservationist Frank Stewart back in 1967.  The lake is much more popular for fishing, than paddling, but since Brian and I were camping with the Scouts a few minutes away AND already had our kayaks, why not?


Not much other than that, Brian and I enjoyed paddling around for a half hour or so!
