Holden City Lake

Enjoy the Out of Doors at the Holden City Lake

With 385 acres of water nestled in the middle of 600 acres of undisturbed land, the Holden City Lake offers some of the best crappie, bluegill, bass, and catfish fishing in Missouri. Along with fishing, people from all around enjoy hiking, horseback riding, and picnicking. There are boat ramps and restrooms located at each end of the dam for your convenience. While no rifle or pistol use is allowed, located around the shores are 7 fowl hunting blind sights, a drawing will be held for the blinds.  Drawing date will be announced prior to season.
