Cooley Lake in Clay County is located inside the 1,348 acre Cooley Lake Conservation Area, which is managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation. This little oxbow lake was once part of the main channel of the Missouri River. The area also consists of wetlands, croplands, and forested bluff making it ideal for fishing, hunting, and hiking. Birds migrate in spring and fall, while eagles are spotted in the wintertime. Currently, the lake still has access to the river, and there is a variety of fish species including largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish. There are some primitive campsites, but unfortunately no amenities. Nevertheless, it’s a picturesque lake where one can enjoy the great Missouri outdoors!
