Today they call it the Wellston Wildlife Area but, to me it will always just be Lake Rupert. The property is about 1,300 acres and features a 327 acre man made lake.
It was built in 1969 so many local people remember homes and even a covered bridge that once were located at the site. The covered bridge was picked up and moved to another location but the homes were simply vacated and flooded.
This is a popular spot for fishing and boating. I like it for the birdwatching and for the hibiscus which are in bloom right now.
Aren’t they beautiful?
