WHITE LAKE. White Lake, six miles southwest of Needmore in southeastern Bailey County (centered at 33°57' N, 102°46' W), is one of three lakes in the Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge. The natural sink type lake is at an elevation of 3,710 feet above sea level and is divided by a causeway into Upper and Lower White Lake. The terrain surrounding the lake is flat to gently sloping surfaced by loose sand that supports scrub brush and grasses. The area is frequented by migrating waterfowl, including the Sandhill Crane. There is easy access to campground facilities and the wildlife refuge headquarters for visitors.
