Not sure where you got your information but Dru Barner is NOT on the shores of Lake Walton. Nowhere near. I horse camp there a few times a year. Great trail riding and many sites with horse pens. Can be black widow spiders at the wood picnic table sites so beware. Closed right now as they're clearing dead trees from the beetles. Hopefully are opening soon. Waiting! !
