If you have never heard of Bayles Lake, well, this is a must see area, there is nothing quite like it - a slice of paradise! The lake is Spring-fed with multiple locations throughout the lake! This development was excavated from an existing large stream in the early 1950's and was discovered to be a perfect location to develop a water recreation area as blue clay is the base for the lake, perfect for holding spring-fed fresh water from the massive aquifers that run well below. No mud bottom here! Our dual annual water tests of the lake water prove how clean the water is on a yearly basis! The home owners at Bayles take great pride in our lake community!
