A beautiful lake to kayak, especially during the lotus blooming season in July/August. There is a nice park and marina off Willow Dr. on the Iowa side of the lake with boat ramps, so entry/exit is easy.

Water skied on this lake years ago. Pleasant lake that used to be a bend on the Missouri river.
