Over two million recreation users visit Enid Lake annually to enjoy some form of recreation or solitude. Activities include fishing for the next world record crappie, hunting, water skiing, swimming, bird watching, or simply enjoying the clean, quiet beauty of Enid Lake.
A spectacular view of pristine beauty greets visitors in the form of a flower garden at the entrance to Wallace Creek, a well-known campground at Enid Lake. This garden is made possible by volunteers such as William D. King, Ebby Williams, and Richard S. King. These volunteers are responsible for planting, fertilizing, and weeding this garden and general grounds maintenance at the Wallace Creek campground.
William D. King, who is in charge of the flowerbed, is from Memphis.
King retired from Memphis Light and Gas after 34 years where he was grounds maintenance foreman and inspector for the tree trimming crews along the power lines.
King stated, "camping, and fishing along with the beauty of the lake attracted him to Enid Lake."
