John Redmond Reservoir sits in the broad Neosho River Valley. The rolling hills afford the visitor an opportunity to see acres of agriculture and grassland, with vast fields of wheat and corn.

Large areas of grasses including bluestem, Indian grass and switch grass can be seen from the rolling hilltops. The lower areas provided a wooded cover of elm, black walnut, hickory, ash, hackberry, cottonwood and cedar.
