Willow Slough State Game Preserve Reviews & Ratings
It was a very relaxing stay not a lot of campers being noisy. Weather was beautiful, fishing wasn't great but we did catch a few small gills and I caught a bass about 12 inches long. All in all it was a good stay we will return
Been going there since I was born..Took my kids there often growing up, and now they frequent " the slough" often...great for hunting...duck...deer pheasant...and great fishing. The staff at the boat house are great too !
This is my fishing spot. It's so quiet and relaxing and some excellent fishing. You can rent boats and canoes but i prefer to walk. I feel like i am in heaven cause it's so quiet. I do recommend everyone that like to relax after a long ride.
Very clean park had a great time.
I love coming here. Always so peaceful.
