Lake Ogallala & Bald Eagle Viewing Center

Visit the Bald Eagle Viewing Center

Just below Kingsley Dam is Lake Ogallala, known as the “little lake.” It covers about half a square mile and offers excellent fishing for rainbow trout and yellow perch. It’s also a good backup destination if wind curtails water sports on the big lake.

Lake Ogallala also is the site of the Bald Eagle Viewing Center. The variety of habitat in the area attracts one of the largest and most diverse bird populations documented in the United States. The center is open for eagle viewing late December through early March.
