The older I get, the more I realize that every person and every place has a story to tell.
In some instances, more than one story! Shawnee Mac Lakes Conservation Area is no exception.
This 257-acre oasis located in Dent County sits just two miles east of Salem off of County Road 4110.
It’s a fine mix of forest and grassland, along with two large fishing lakes. Ziske Lake covers 30 acres, while Turner Lake comes in at 17 acres.
