      This 1,149 acre site was acquired by the Dept. of the Interior during the 1930s - the Dust Bowl years - as part of efforts to return some of the land worst affected by drought and over-intensive farming to its natural state. Today, having recovered from a devastating fire in 2006, the native grasslands and water of Lake McClellan provide habitat for a variety of wildlife including deer, coyotes and turkeys.

      If you go:
      Facilities include camping and picnicking areas and a boat dock (although, if you visit in the height of summer, you may well find that much of the lake has completely disappeared).
