Martin Lake Dam is an interesting thing to check out; swing by North Mineral Creek it's a magnificent place to check out. The charming marina of Running Branch Marina and Campground is a good location to leave dry land behind. Sleep Inn & Suites Franklin is a pleasant site to get some rest, and why not a little side tour to South Mineral Creek. Dry warm beds await you at Best Western Franklin Inn & Suites.
Not far from Martin Lake, you'll locate Lake Limestone which is a scenic lake, and this is a popular place for people from New Baden.
