Kick Off The New Year At Lake Mac!

The heated eagle viewing facility below Kingsley Dam on Lake Ogallala will be open weekends from January 7 through February 26, 2023 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  A valid 2023 Park Entry Permit is required to access the area.

When ice forms on area lakes and rivers, bald eagles and many waterfowl species concentrate on areas where they can find open water, like this area kept open by the turbulence from the operation of the Kingsley Hydroplant.  The eagles feed on shad, alewife and other small fish, although they’re occasionally seen plucking larger fish like catfish and carp from the water.
