It’s a beautiful piece of land right outside of Kansas City int the state of Missouri. Let’s take a look into some of the many things you can do here.

Summer Entertainment Close to Lee’s Summit

Summer is here and there are several lakes close to Lee’s Summit. We have:

  • Lake Lotawana

  • Lake Jacomo

  • Blue Springs Lake

  • Gopher Lake

  • Lake Nell

  • Cotton Tail Lake

  • Plover Lake

  • Catclaw Lake

  • Jackrabbit Lake

These are great places to go camping, boating or swimming. Lake Lotawana, Blue Springs Lake and Lake Jacomo are the largest, while the other lakes are considered to be a part of the James A. Reed Memorial Wildlife Area.

Nestled in between both Lake Jacomo and Blue Spring Lake is Fleming Park. Fleming park offers boating and fishing on both lakes, a model airplane field and a soccer field. This is a good way to reconnect with nature, and the scenery is stunning.

Lake Lotawana is a good place for boating and fishing. All boats need to be registered by May first though. This could mean you might have to wait until next year to get your toy out of the driveway and into the water. The town of Lake Lotawana has many fun and interesting events that happen around and in the lake.

The James A. Reed Wildlife Reserve is a great place for fishing and hunting. Hunting season may not be here, but it’s never a bad time to get your fishing gear and head out to one of the many lakes found here. Horseback riding is another reason to come to this park. There are walking and riding trails running along and through the forested areas of the reserve.

These places are sure to have critters that you won’t want to bring back home though, so be sure to check your gear for unwanted stowaways. If a few do manage to get past you, our pest control will help keep them out so that you don’t have to worry.
