Fort Custer comprises over 3,000 acres of forest and oak savannah. Amenities include 219 campsites with water and electric hookups. There is also a dump station. Three lakes provide no-wake-boating, fishing, and kayaking. A large beach at Eagle Lake includes a concession stand, bath, and changing facilities. Hunting is allowed in some areas of the park. This is usually not an issue if you wear orange from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 and don't wear antlers on your helmet!
