    Okay, thanks, I used to live in Kettering, but hardly ever went there. Mostly we'd go to Spring Valley....CC wasn't built yet.
    Spring Valley was still a lake vs. a marsh. They had boat rentals, bait & snack shop, public camping close to the lake, off to the left of the road past the old restaurant just before the parking lot. I think part of the old water pump is still there. The lake had a big peninsula that ran diagonal out into it a good ways. It was about 15' deep, it eventually silted in and they drained it about 1968 (?) and dredged it out & removed the peninsula too. so much for the "good old days" ;)
