Three Mile Lake Recreation Area

Union County's largest recreational facility, Three Mile Lake offers something for everybody. From fishing to camping, the park boasts a variety of year-round activities. Several species of wildlife call the area home, including whitetail deer, wild turkey, quail and Canada Geese. The lake and surrounding area is even a Canada Goose Refuge Site. Through REAP funding, the park has upgraded its campsites, added tracts and conserved the lake's watershed.

REAP funding for this project: $1,253,590
