Within the perimeters of Lake Shawnee are three lakes for residents to enjoy. Those that enjoy water activities are spoilt for choice, and there is plenty to do on the shores, as well. Jon boats are welcome on the waters of the three lakes, so fishermen have access to all the best honey holes. The lakes are renowned for their populations of crappie, catfish, bass and even chain pickerel. Those residents that just prefer to float out on the water enjoy paddle boating, canoeing and kayaking. The small beaches that dot the perimeters of the lakes make the perfect playground for families with small children and swimmers of all ages.
Around the lakes, private nooks for picnics and common areas give members of the Lake Shawnee community the opportunity to enjoy nature – and each other – without leaving the subdivision.

This is an active neighborhood whose friendly residents stay in touch via a common social media page and through more traditional outlets, such as homeowners association meetings. Besides the property owners association, there are community clean-up events and other activities to draw those living in Lake Shawnee together.
