Note: Lake George Information: On the surface, Lake George looks like any other North Dakota lake, glistening in the summer sun. Lake George is unusual among North Dakota's natural lakes because of its great depth (more than 150 feet deep) and its high salt content, presently about a third in salinity of seawater. The thrusting of ice by retreating glaciers at the end of the last ice age formed the lake more than 12,000 years ago. Because the lake is so deep, it has not dried up during major droughts of the past and has a continuous record of environmental change preserved in the layers of sediments. In contrast, many of the shallower regional lakes have dried at various times, and parts of the sediment record have been lost by erosion and deflation. At Lake George, scientists found more than 100 feet of mud below the lake floor in deep water areas and saw evidence of small sub-surface deltas and terraces. Much of the basal layer of sediment was probably deposited during glacier retreat just after the lake was formed in massive flows of meltwater. The temperature and chemical profile of the lake's water shows the surface water of around 30+ feet at 73 degrees and temperatures in the bottom waters of just above freezing. The unusually high salinity of Lake George likely occurs because the deep lake basin intersects deep saline sources of groundwater that do not feed the local shallower lakes. Lake George is too salty for most fish, but it does contain rooted plants, invertebrates and microscopic organisms. Waterfowl feast on the small minnows. Because of the lake's salinity, haptophytes that grow only in saltwater, thrive there, and because of the lake's 150 foot depth, its sediment has never been disturbed, allowing scientists to study the regions historical temperatures and precipitation up to 10,000 years ago. Lake George is a beautiful North Dakota treasure and has been enjoyed for many years by the locals as a favorite for swimming in the past. Higher water has covered passable roads limiting public access to the lake to just the local landowners along the shores.Higher water has covered passable roads limiting public access to the lake, left only to the local landowners along the shores. The north channel of Lake George is the deep area. The south portion that borders this Subject Land used to be separated from the main Lake George. We are told this area is a lot shallower than the main lake. The Refuge area shaded on the map restricts hunting of Migration Waterfowl, recreational boating and swimming. Landowners are allowed to hunt Upland Game, Deer and Fish year round (except during Waterfowl Hunting Season), with motorboats of any size. FOR A VIDEO OF THIS PROPERTY, CLICK HERE.
