About this Area

Total Acres

Little Compton Lake Conservation Area is in northeastern Carroll County. This area includes 1.5 miles of frontage on the north bank of the Grand River and a 40-acre lake, which is managed to provide public fishing. The lake contains a variety of species, including largemouth bass, bluegill, channel catfish, crappie, carp, and buffalo. The Conservation Department purchased this area in 1983 to provide the public with good quality outdoor activities, which include fishing, hunting, and nature enjoyment.

The upland areas are managed to protect the lake's watershed and to provide upland game hunting. Approximately 120 acres of bottomland forest along the Grand River are managed to protect the river bank and to provide habitat for deer, turkey, and other forest wildlife.
