GEARY COUNTY STATE PARK
Acquisition: 282 acres were purchased in 1959 by the Forestry, Fish and Game Commission.
Area Description: The area is being used as a combination wildlife and fishing area. Shortly after the purchase, the creek was dammed and impounded approximately 97 acres of water. The balance of the 185 acres are in native tallgrass prairie and oak-hackberry uplands. During 1987 the lake was drawn down to upgrade the boat ramp and to establish brush pile fish attractors. The lake finally refilled in 1992 following five years of drought.
