Geary State Fishing Lake News
The designated primitive camping area is free of charge and no reservations are needed. Camping is limited to 14 consecutive days on the property. There are several picnic shelters, fire rings and yard lights, one 2-stall vault toilet, and one boat ramp. There is no running water and no electrical outlets are available. There is a SAFETY ZONE posted from the east bluff above the campgrounds down to the lake. The remaining area is open to public hunting.
Lakeshore access continues to be improved through cutting trees, low hanging branches and burning the lakeshore each spring. Six loads of filter rock were spread along the lakeshore north of the bathrooms this summer.
Fishing regulations are posted on the kiosks by the main entrance, the upper east road and next to the boat ramp. Lake maps and fishing regulation pamphlets are available at the kiosks at the main entrance, west side and east side.
The south end of the wildlife area was burned the spring of 2010 with the help of neighboring landowners. Both the east and west sides were burned last spring. The native grass areas are routinely burned to help maintain good quality forbs in the grasslands and to help control excessive woody invasion. Our tree shearing efforts were continued again this year. We have been cutting invasive trees in the grasslands and are working to build a firebreak on the south end by clearing the trees and brush along the property line. The west side of the lake is scheduled to be burned in the spring of 2011.
