Lake Jacomo spans 970 acres within Jackson County, Missouri, named as a portmanteau of its county’s first two letters from each word. The lake, which is located within Fleming Park, is one of the region’s top outdoor recreational areas, offering a marina providing boat rental, bait and tackle sales, and concessions. Three boat ramps provide access for largemouth and striped bass, catfish, bluegill, crappie, and walleye fishing, along with leisurely pontoon boating and sailboating. Several sailboat regattas are held at the lake each year, and a number of campground areas are offered for overnight stay. Hiking trails are also offered throughout the recreational area, including the 1.5-mile Rock Ledges Nature Trail and the 1.2-mile Pa-Huska Nature Trail.
