Crane Lake Conservation Area

This clear blue 100 acre lake was formed by impounding Crane Pond Creek with an earth fill dam at the upstream end of a “shut-ins” or narrow gorge cut in the granite bedrock.  Picnic along the lakeshore, fish from the gentle banks, canoe the waters and hike the coves.  Fish for largemouth bass, channel catfish and panfish.  Crane Lake is one of the most beautiful small lakes in the area with a 12 mile hiking and biking trail around the lake, picnic areas, and great fishing. Crane Lake (North loop) and Crane Pond (south loop) trails are peaceful. The south loop trail connects to the Marble Creek Section of the Ozark Trail. Hiking Hwy E to Crane Pond Lake Road. 14 miles from 21 and 221 in Arcadia via 21 South, "E" East and County Road 131
