    Owned and managed by Middle-Snake-Tamarac Rivers Watershed District. Best driving access from the northwest and south; there are roads along part of the west side of the impoundment, as well as the east and south side of the impoundment. The impoundment has good water conditions in spring; at other time of the year, water conditions are dependent on rains. More permanent water is on the east and south sides of the impoundment. Note that the impoundment is open to hunters in fall but hunters need to contact the Watershed District for access.
