The prairie tract owned by the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory lies northwest of Miller's Bay, West Okoboji Lake, in Section 23, T. 99 N., R. XXXVII W., Dickson County, Iowa. It covers approximately sixty acres of irregular surface, which drains toward the southeast into the bay. There are several more or less prominent morainic knobs in the tract. Three springy places support hanging bogs, each with its little stream draining into the lake; another tiny bog has no outlet. A shallow pond on the extreme western edge of the tract has been drained by highway ditches and is practically extinct. The slopes are quite steep in many places. The knobs were from sixty to ninety feet above the lake level in 1934.
