A shame about the lake drying up; my dad taught me to fish there in the late 50's. Good to see Cheyenne Bottoms going strong, though. That was his favorite catfish haunt. Says Steve K.

Barton Lake, aka Lake Barton, is no longer a useable lake for water
recreation. The lake dried up in 1980's and never was revived. There is currently a hiking and biking path that goes through a forest that has grown where the lake used to be with a little meadow or clearing in what used to be the center of the lake. Boat docks still exist with trees growing beneath and around them. Says Russell Hunter
