Caraway Lake


Caraway Lake is located north of the I-70 bridge on H Hwy at the corner of Gillespie Rd.


Caraway Lake is approximately a 3 acre lake which is stocked with crappie, catfish, bass and other types of game fish. The hours are from 6:00 am - 11:00 pm. Fishing in Caraway Lake requires a fishing permit from the City in addition to the fishing license required by the state of Missouri. The city permit can be acquired at the Parks and Recreation office. (TEMPORARY UPDATE: While the Covid-19 stay at home orders are still in place, we are not requiring fishermen to have the city permit. We do ask that you please observe all social distancing rules, however. When the stay at home order is lifted, we will begin requiring all fishermen to have the city permit again.)
