Named after the Gardner family which owned a large portion of the surrounding land, the 528-acre (214 ha) lake has been expanded in size with the construction of an earthen dam. Three state parks are located around Gardner Lake. Minnie Island State Park, the smallest state park, is a pine knoll. Hopemead State Park is a former campground that abuts the lake's eastern shore. Gardner Lake State Park primarily serves as a boat launch and swimming area, but has been beset by problems with trash and vandalism since the area was improved in 2008. Four campgrounds, a marina and dozens of private residences surround the lake. The lake is used for fishing and boating.
