The sun sets on fishermen fishing at Richey Cove on Council Grove Lake. Constructed between 1960 and 1964, Council Grove Lake is located one mile north of the town of Council Grove in the Kansas Flint Hills. The 3,310 acre lake, managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers offers swimming, fishing, water skiing, and other boating activities. Shore activities include camping, hiking, biking, and picnicking. The town of Council Grove is the starting point for the Flint HIlls National Scenic Byway (Kansas State Highway 177) which takes visitors through the rolling hills of the scenic tallgrass prairie of the region. Less than four percent of the original 140 million acres of tallgrass prairie remains in North America. Most of the remaining tallgrass prairie is in the Flint Hills in Kansas.
