Sparkling Lake

   Sparkling Lake has clear aqua blue water, is really deep and has a nice hard bottom for swimming. The lake has very few homes on it. The major drawback is that Highway 51 runs along the east side of the lake. If you don't mind some road noise, there are some great opportunities to own on a high quality lake that pop up.
