Comments: Carver Lake is a great place for a day outdoors. It is a pretty lake surrounded by hills and is 36 feet deep with fairly clear water. Carver Lake has no fishing pier, but there is a boardwalk that runs along the shore. The lake has a history of abundant Northern Pike. Bluegill, Crappie, Northern Pike, and Largemouth Bass are in decent numbers according to 2009 survey. Try the swimming beach if you want to take a break on a hot day, it is open to the public but there are no lifeguards on duty. 

A lake survey scheduled for 2014 will provide updated information on the fish population in this lake.
