In this rural, southern Chester County park, fishing opportunities are limited to three warm water bodies of water - the Little Pond, McPherson Pond and our newest addition, King Pond. Parking is available for McPherson Pond and the Little Pond; however, the King Pond does not offer onsite parking and is only accessible by foot. From the closest parking area King Pond is 2/3/ of a mile walk. Each pond provides easy access to shoreline.

In the one-acre Little Pond on the park’s east side, an angler may hook Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish and Brown Bullhead.

The 2.5-acre McPherson Lake and the 2.0-acre Kind Pond has Bluegill and Largemouth Bass, and are catch and release only.
