Barber State Fishing Lake is located in Northeast Barber County at the north edge of the City of Medicine Lodge. Camping, picnicking, and fishing are allowed throughout the area. Two boat ramps are available for boat launching, and boats are to be used for fishing only. Barber State Fishing Lake contains good populations of largemouth bass, channel catfish, walley, crappie, bluegill, and carp. Channel catfish are stocked yearly to maintain these populations. Anglers should consult information signs or current regulations to obtain up-to-date length and creel limits. The northern 80 acres of the area are open to public hunting. Species available include deer, turkey, quail, dove, waterfowl, and cottontail rabbit. A large furbearer population can also be found on the area.
