Natural Features:

The Pomme de Terre River and Lindley Creek are the major sources for Pomme de Terre Lake, which spans 7,790 sparkling surface acres, with 113 miles of shoreline.

Recreation:

The lake is well known for fishing, with one of the highest catch ratios in the country. Species include bass, catfish, walleye and crappie, but the lake is probably best known for its muskie, which is stocked each fall.

Both canoeing and power boating are popular on the lake, with a good amount of water skiing and other water activities taking place.

Facilities:

Lightfoot Landing has 29 sites with electric and water hookups, including one that is accessible. Non-electric sites include RV sites, one tent-only site, and two group campsites. Both group campsites fit up to 50 guests.

Additional amenities include a shower house, boat ramp with courtesy dock, dump station, playground and picnic shelter.

Nearby Attractions:

One of the best dirt tracks in the country and is located down 83 highway in Wheatland. Also nearby is the Pomme de Terre Multipurpose Trail, located in Bolivar Landing.
