Neegronda Reservoir

0

This is another large reservoir that can be quite productive, especially in winter, when huge flocks of geese and large numbers of Bald Eagles can congregate here. The north side is owned by a private campground, and the trees here could be good for migrants, if you are staying here or paying the fee. A trail leads down to a viewing blind at Mud Lake with interpretive signage; there is handicapped access with permission. Other wildlife in the area include pronghorn, white-tailed deer, rabbits, foxes, and snakes and other reptiles.
