Camping, Fishing & Swimming (All visits by appointment only)
If you really want to take in all we have to offer at Shark Tooth Creek, you'll need to bring your tent and set up camp at our scenic pavilion camp ground which is located on a beautiful hillside overlooking 75 acres of water. Our pavilion features restrooms, showers, outdoor cooking facilities, and picnic tables. We also provide firewood and a fire ring if you care for a camp fire.
Many groups come here, set up camp, then hunt shark teeth one day,
canoe the next, and also work in a little fishing time. It's hard to do it
all in one day.
For groups that are too young for the river we can put the canoes in the catfish ponds where races are organized or water games invented. Some kids enjoy trying to tip the other canoes over. No problem, the ponds are shallow and we insist on life jackets, and the kids enjoy the swim.
We are no longer raising catfish commercially, due to declining economic conditions within the industry, but there are still plenty of fish for the kids to catch. We prefer that you catch and release, and think you'll agree that the joy is in the catching , not the cleaning.
We have also added a swimming area, complete with a shaded pier where the parents can sit and watch their kids bounce on a 25 ft. diameter floating trampoline. This has been a big hit.
Your group will enjoy exploring our farm with the lakes, river, and many creeks all adjacent. Some of you might just want to relax under the pavilion and take in the panoramic view. There's always a breeze stirring on this little hill.
