The Great Plains Reservoirs, located just south of Eads, Colorado, offers Kiowa County visitors some of the best fishing opportunities to be found anywhere in Colorado. The natural setting of the reservoirs and the mild climate make fish abundant in all of the reservoirs.
The most common species of fish found in Kiowa County's Great Plains Reservoirs include wiper, saugeye, walleye, crappie, channel catfish, largemouth bass, small mouth bass, bullhead, drum, and carp. Fish weighing in excess of five pounds are common. Fish species are similar in all Kiowa County lakes and reservoirs.
Public access to all six reservoirs is available with the exception of Neesopah Reservoir, which is currently surrounded by private land. There is one partially developed campground, Cottonwood Park (719-438-5544), located on the north side of Neegronda Reservoir. Cottonwood Park has a limited number of electrical hookups, showers, and restroom facilities. Public toilet facilities are available at Adobe, Neenoshe, and Neeskah Reservoirs as well. Dry camping is available at all the reservoirs.
There are currently no marinas available at the reservoirs, so fuel for boats must be hauled to the reservoir areas by the boater. Cottonwood Park has a small general store open at varying hours during the summer months, and other supplies may be purchased in the town of Eads, located just north of the reservoir area.
