Valley Springs

Surrounded by three beautiful lakes, Valley Springs offers abundant outdoor recreation from water sports, fishing, swimming and boating to hiking and biking. Enjoy spectacular trails in spring, bursting with wildflowers, summer camping and serene waterfront sunsets in fall.

Valley Springs’ beautiful reservoirs are all within half an hour of each other. Each offers different recreational opportunities, and a variety of topography, geographical features, wildlife and birds. Hit the links while you’re here at La Contenta’s championship golf course. When visiting our beautiful environment, remember to Hop Lightly.

Valley Springs: New Hogan Lake

The furthest east of the Valley Springs Lakes, New Hogan is spectacularly beautiful, with pristine lakeside picnic tables and campsites all offering well laid out, thoughtful design with gorgeous views in mind. In addition, there are two 9-hole disc golf courses for your enjoyment. Green in spring and winter, the landscape turns golden, dotted with deciduous oak trees in summer.
