Despite its sound, the name “Lake Le-Aqua- Na” does not come from some Native American language. It’s actually the winning entry from a contest to name the lake, sponsored by the local sportsman’s club in 1956: aqua, Latin for “water,” stuck in the middle of the name of the nearby town of Lena. While the name may be a bit unusual, it does reflect the pride that the staff and the local community take in this beautiful park. The 40-acre lake is the centerpiece, and everything around it is well maintained and clean, from the restrooms to the trails and even the campsite fire rings. It’s busy on weekends but well worth a visit if you’re looking for a comfortable place to camp, relax, and perhaps fish or swim. Lake Le-Aqua-Na has two campgrounds, and both offer good choices for tent campers.
