At the Black Kettle Recreation Area you can hike, camp, and picnic to your heart’s content. In addition, Skipout Lake and Spring Creek Lake have boat ramps, fishing, and swimming available. Undeveloped sections of the grasslands are also open for exploration. That is where you’ll find nature watching and photography opportunities are the best. The grasslands are also home to a diverse group of wildlife such as deer, turkey, beavers, bald eagles, and Monarch butterflies. Parts of the grasslands are open for hunting and are popular with quail, turkey, and deer hunters. The grasslands are also host to two commercial endeavors, cattle ranching and gas and oil drilling.
