In the event that you want to explore some attention-grabbing animals, take a look at Cosley Zoo while you're here at Busse Lake. What would winter be without some skiing at Villa Olivia; in case you want to take a ride on a horse Sarah's Pony Rides is in the neighborhood. A great place to camp here at Busse Lake is Hi Five Sports Camp. Lakes are good; Keene Lake is a lake that's close to Busse Lake.
Elk Pasture is a wonderful site any time of year, and West Branch Salt Creek is near Busse Lake and is always a joy to take a look at. This lake is so wonderful.
