Overview

Pibel Lake is a hidden, secluded oasis on the edge of the Sandhills where large cottonwood trees lean over a quiet, spring-fed lake. There is an abundance of wildlife and a healthy population of growing fish in the newly renovated lake.

Pibel Lake is a 72-acre(48 acres of land and a 24-acre lake) state recreation area set in a small valley hidden from the highway. The lake was recently renovated and stocked with bluegills, largemouth bass and channel catfish. A boat dock for smaller boats has also been added. This area offers primitive camping, no wake boating, picnicking and a playground.
