Bring your fishing poles and tackle box!  Both lakes are stocked with many kinds of fish including largemouth bass, chain pickerel, channel catfish, crappie, bluegills, and carp.  Wilderness Presidential Resort has two lakes, for twice the fishing challenge. Cool Spring Lake (lower lake) and Hazel Grove Lake (upper lake).   Fishing is permitted from the shore, on rented Jon boats, or on personally owned boats (electric motors or oars only) with a fishing license. 

Walk across the swinging bridge to Wilder Nest Island, our staffed Marina on Cool Spring Lake, where you can rent Jon boats or to enjoy fishing from the shore.  Alternatively, visit the Gymnasium for rentals.  Boat Rentals are subject to weather conditions.

Get your fishing license online.
