This is one of my favorite lakes. I was always out there as a child and know I can take my girls out there. The best little lake around the rapid area!! Says Leah K.
I had a very traumatic incident on the south dock today by the picnic benches. My five year old fell on the slippery surface and tumbled into the water which she would not touch bottom. My mother jumped in after her and she could not touch bottom. I dragged both of them out of the water and
thank God they are okay but there should be a sign that says the water may be deep as it was deceptive when looking down at it. And some sort of sandpaper material on that plastic dock to avoid slippyer spills. we were all traumatized
after such an incident and hope it doesn't happen to anyone else. Says Susan R
Sheridan Lake is a wonderful 380 acre lake.
At the bottom of Sheridan Lake is the old town of Sheridan SD. It was a Gold Camp back in the days before the valley was flooded to create Sheridan Lake Recreation Area. Very good fishing for Perch, Crappie, Northern Pike and Trout.
