Julesburg - Sedgwick County
Aliases: DePoorter Lake
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Southeast of Julesburg, on the east side of US 385 north of the river is DePoorter Lake. DePoorter Lake is a lottery fund project. This small lake and affiliated land often host some good birds. Harris's and White-throated Sparrows are often seen here during migration.

Another river access point is south of DePoorter, west off highway 385 between the river and I-76.

The Julesburg Cemetery is just southeast of the Julesburg I-76 exchange. It has some large conifers. I have never hit it big here, but have found good birds from time to time.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Lowland Riparian, Park/Cemetery
Directions: To get to DePoorter Lake, take the Julesburg exit off I-76 (exit 180) and go north about a half-mile past the river. The lake is on the right.
