DEMO DAY! will be held at Gladstone Lake this year.

Gladstone Lake is located approximately 9 miles east of the Burlington bridge just off Hwy 34. If you reach the Gladstone/Oquawka turn you've gone too far. Look for a brown Recreation Area sign. Turn left, drive approximately a mile to the park entrance.

Gladstone Lake is a small, quiet recreation area with fishing, inexpensive camping but no running water.
