Cox Creek

Aquatic Vegetation

Lotus, water primrose, watershield, pondweed and water willow. 

Area Specific Regulations

Use of common carp as bait is prohibited.

Bottom Features

Lake has abundant standing timber, which was flooded when the lake was constructed. Most of these old trees have decayed above the normal lake level. Old snags are at or just below the surface, so boaters are urged to exercise caution when motoring. The southwest portion of the lake is shallow and can pose navigation challenges.

Camping

A pay campsite near the eastern boat ramp is operated by Grant County. Call the Grant County Judge's Office at 870-942-2551 for information on reservations and use. 

Depth

Maximum depth near the levee of about 25 feet. 

Description
