Snakes? I thought it was mercury contamination in the water.

Where was the water pumped out to? If it was bad enough to pump out, it surely had to be pumped into HazMat containers and properly disposed of. That amount would cost several million dollars to dispose of properly. Just saying.

I am very happy that it is opening up. Loved going there as a teen and now my family can enjoy it. I was just pulling the BS card on the persons post who says they work there.

Lake Venus is 10 times better. They have well water continuously being circulated. Dogwood lakes alright but all in all honesty its just a old farm pond they converted. I enjoy water period no matter what kind but lake Venus is my pick.

Not a converted pond. It was dug, and yes I was there. Used to drive through there about every day as it was being built in the mid 80s

We drove to Dogwood Lake this weekend . Looks pretty good. We go to Dogwood to have a nice camping experience. We also swim too. I believe all you can do at Lake Venus is swim not camp unless it has changed.

thanks for ur feedback.
I was born in 89 so I wasn't around for construction of original dogwood lake. Even though dogwood was dug to serve purpose of recreation the quality of the water isn't close to lake Venus. The constantly circulating well water makes Venus much more refreshing on hot day. Lake V's waters cleaner crisper with a irresistible tint of blue. Even in the late 90's I thought dogwood lake had a stagnate look about it. the entry fee at dogwood was always higher than Lake V. As a child I visited both regularly, thought it silly dogwood had a campground, may as well pitch a tent in backyard. The older I got the more I preferred lake v.

are they bringing back the rides? I'd love to see the place operating in original fashion.

Blah blah blah, well water, blah

Dogwood lake in the 90's was the place to be. It's a shame they didn't keep it up & going.
