Lake Thompson Recreation Area

Lake Thompson was originally called Dry Woods Lake by American Indians.  It went from completely dry in the 1930's to a 9,000-acre marsh in the 80's.  Heavy rains in the mid-80's filled it to over 20' deep.  The lake is so distinct it was designated as a National Natural Landmark.
