Lake Wilson

Wilson Lake

Wilson Lake is an oasis in the dry prairies of Western  Kansas. The waters which flow into Wilson Lake have many unique  properties because of the limestone through which they flow. The lake  has high salt content which allows it to support some types of fish,  such as the striped bass, which are native to the ocean. Limestone also  filters the waters, making Wilson the clearest lake in Kansas, and a  great location for scuba diving and other water sports.
