Comments: Ravine is a hidden gem of a fishing lake that has nice walleye and largemouth bass. Tucked away in a valley this is also a great lake/park to go birdwatching at, herons, egrets, hawks, and eagles can all be seen in and around the lake. It is also a popular ice fishing lake and the park offers cross country skiing. The fishing pier makes it easy to get past the aquatic vegetation.
