I like this lake, it's very beautiful and peaceful. And is located in what is in my opinion the most beautiful part of Nebraska. It's a quite small lake by any standards, I'd say about 15 acres, maybe 20. It's in the middle of the Oglala National Grassland so there's of course all kinds of hiking and camping near the lake. I don't know of any campground right on or very near the lake, if there was I'd go there all the time. Says Dave
This lake is so
wonderful. You get a great vista of Strawstack Butte from Board Gate Dam Reservoir; an interesting thing to have a look at near Board Gate Dam Reservoir is Boardgate Dam.
