John Redmond Lake

John Redmond Reservoir lies in a broad flat valley with margins of the gently rolling Flint Hills — a bluestem grass region of natural scenic beauty. The 59-mile shoreline around the 9,400-acre reservoir provides excellent camping areas and retreats for vacationists who like to get away from the beaten path. Located in the middle of the vast Central Flyway, the reservoir is on an important flight path for migratory ducks and geese. Large flocks of Canvasback Ducks as well as Snow and Blue Geese move through the Neosho River Valley in the Spring and fall, and the Flint Hills contain the largest concentration of greater prairie chickens in the United States.rn
