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 provide a wooded cover of elm, black walnut, hickory, ash, hackberry, cottonwood and cedar.
The nearby town of Burlington, Kansas, provides gas, grocery and hospital services.
With nearly 10,000 acres of water and 30,000 acres of land, John Redmond Reservoir provides excellent opportunities for fishing and hunting. White crappie, white bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish and various sunfish species can be found in abundance.
Several trails wind through the hills and along the shore. The Otter Creek ATV area is located at the west end of the dam and provides 140 acres of trails for dirt bikes and ATVs. The area is open from sunrise to sunset.
