Closed for the 2017 Season

Well its come to that time of the year where the water is cold, the water is cloudy with runoff and we are worn out from a full season of running the place. So the lake is closed for season and we intend to change some things up for next year. feel free to leave feedback of what you would like to see for next year as well.

Organically Managed Lake, Farm, and Forest

Hidden in the hills of Northern Kentucky, Crouch’s Treasure Lake is Kentucky’s largest pay fishing lake and gives a

serene natural setting for fishing and recreation.   The property is 66 acres of land that holds a 15 acre lake with an irregular shaped coastline and varying depths.  If there was a ranking category for fishing lakes it would be measured as difficult as the shape of the lake requires you to move around the lake to find the right spot depending on the fishing conditions of the day. Furthermore, forested hillsides surround the lake and create the ambiance of being immersed in an area that is remote and secluded.  However, Hebron, Kentucky, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and Cincinnati, Ohio are all very accessible with the later being only 22 miles away. On site we manage our natural resources organically to enhance the natural capitol that is abundant here as we steward the water body, the forest, and the flat fields that form Dark Wood Farm.

Crouch’s Treasure Lake is a family owned business operating for 34 years now in Petersburg, KY in Boone County.  On site is a large clubhouse/bar for entertainment, refreshments, and tackle and can be rented for parties, benefits, or weddings.  The

lake itself is an earthen dam placed in a small stream flooding backwards away from the Ohio River which is less than a half mile away.  There are naturally occurring fish such as crappie, bluegill, and largemouth bass while catfish are stocked.  A mowed field around the clubhouse provides other recreation opportunities while the forest is being actively managed for native forest biodiversity and wildlife.  Lastly, flat ridges perfectly jut out towards the lake providing space for comfortable camping and leisurely hiking with lots of wildlife and an ever changing landscape with the seasons.
