River Summary: The Neosho River is a 463-mile-long river that flows through Kansas and Oklahoma. The river has a rich history dating back to the 1800s when it was used for transportation and trade. Today, the river is used for agriculture and recreation. The Neosho River watershed includes several reservoirs and dams, including the John Redmond Reservoir, the Council Grove Lake, and the Fall River Lake. These reservoirs provide water for irrigation and drinking purposes and also offer recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping. The hydrology of the river is subject to flooding, particularly in Oklahoma where the river has caused severe damage in the past. Despite this, the Neosho River and its associated reservoirs continue to be an important resource for the region.
