Just completed our stay and it was great. The fishing off the dock is great and we caught lots of fish and had two large fish frys. Would have more, but I did not want to clean any more fish. If the lake would be at normal height it hard to guess if the fishing come have been even bettter. The cottage is great and we enjoy going into Lawton and Paw Paw for dinners and wine tours. Did blueberry picking in Paw Paw which was outstanding. We even manage to have the three boys go horse back riding. Great place to stay.
My boyfriend and myself could not have been happier with our stay at the shack!! The fishing was amazing, building fires every night was so much fun and the stars at night are just breath taking! The lake is so clean you can see all the way to the bottom! The shack is very clean and well maintained. Ken and his wife were just wonderful. I would absolutely recommend anyone to stay here! The St. Julian winery in Paw Paw was great and the restraunts in Lawton are perfect! The whole stay was just wonderful, can't wait to go back!!

My husband, myself and our 3 year old son recently stayed for several days on Bankson Lake and had a wonderful time. We had the stress-free, relaxing getaway we were hoping for. My son enjoyed playing in the water and loved going for boat rides. Although the fishing was slow when we were there, my husband enjoyed fishing from the pier and out in the boat. The cottage was clean and perfect for our needs. We also enjoyed the friendly hospitality and plan to be repeat renters.
