Outdoors with Dad

Lake Arthur, Moraine State Park

Butler County has more than 40 miles of shoreline to explore at Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park, making it the perfect spot to go fishing or boating with Dad. Rent kayaks or a pontoon boat, and enjoy the day on the water. Lake Arthur has some of the best fishing spots with a wide variety of fish, from Bluegill to Musky. While fishing, enjoy the beautiful scenery and try to spot the Bald Eagles that have been known to frequent this area.
