Lake Greeson

Lake Greeson was formed when the Narrows Dam was built on the Little Missouri River in 1950. The dam and lake were the result of the efforts of Martin White Greeson for whom the lake was renamed around 1976. Until that time the lake was known as Narrows Lake. Lake Greeson has great fishing for striped bass, black bass, crappie, bream, catfish, white bass and smallmouth bass. Lake Greeson is also stocked with northern pike and walleye. The Little Missouri River, above and below Lake Greeson, is stocked with rainbow trout.

The lake’s deep cool waters and breezes bring relief to the city dwellers of the region in the summer and a winter refuge for northern snowbirds as well as the occasional glimpse of a bald eagle.

There are campsites, walking/hiking trails & rtv trails, playgrounds, swimming beaches, boat ramps, marinas, fishing docks, and boat slips.
