Just two years ago Lake Hancock was basically gone. In fact, the maintenance staff was literally mowing “the lake”. During a typical year the deepest part of Lake Hancock is only about 16 feet deep, with an average depth of only 4 feet. Because the lake is shallow compared to an average lake, the overall dimensions of the lake change based on the amount of rain.
Thankfully, the drought has ended and the rain has brought the lake back. We now enjoy a full lake once again. This means our campers will be able to fully enjoy the canoeing and and nature scenes. You definitely don’t want to miss the sunset over the lake. Some of my favorite pictures of Lakewood include our beautiful sunsets over Lake Hancock. Feel free to share any pictures on our Facebook page.
