Lake Girardeau is a 162 acre lake, which is located inside the 351 acre Lake Girardeau Conservation Area. The lake was built in 1962 and is now a habitat for a good number of fish including bass, catfish, crappie, and sunfish. The lake has two handicap accessible fishing docks, a boat ramp, and restrooms. It’s a great place to go canoeing, and bird watching as well. There is one camping area, but no electricity or water hook ups. You will find barbecue grills and picnic tables, so you can dine in the midst of nature.
