Lake Shook got its name from the Silas Shook family. The body of water was part of the parcel the Shook family sold and eventually became Squaw Creek Country Club.
At Lake Shook a spring joins Squaw Creek and travels south to Smith-Stewart Road at Methodists' Corners, where Smith-Stewart and Prindle-Booth roads meet. Squaw Creek then flows into Pleasant Valley Lake.
