DeKalb Lake is also one of the lesser known sites in Sylvania. They have so much now. I like their picnic areas, as they are well-kept. I rarely see trash there anymore. The lake is clean, and you can actually fish in lake and buy current licenses there. Over the years, the lake has grown from just being a lake, to having a convenient store, to playgrounds, picnic tables, to campsites. Many family and school reunions, school events, church events, and other events are held there. I like the fact that it is so near home. You can even walk around the lake for exercise. It's a nice place to go if you just want to get out of the house for a while as well.
