Close to Universal Studios, the 178-acre Bill Frederick Park and Pool at Turkey Lake is a popular recreational area. The fully stocked lake is a great place for fishing from the pier, or if you prefer, you can rent a bass boat (reservations are required). If you don’t have any equipment, they may be able to lend you a pole, but call ahead to be sure. The park offers a few playgrounds, a large swimming pool overlooking the lake, picnic areas, and three disc golf courses. Also at the park is an interactive nature trail designed for kids and a cracker-style barn (built in the 1800’s) complete with barnyard animals. Cabin rentals, camping, and RV spaces are available. Traffic noise from the nearby highway may be annoying for tent campers.
