Osprey Lake is located just south of Sheffield or 3 miles west of Buda, within the Mautino State Fish and Wildlife Area.
Osprey Lake was created by strip-mining in the 1950's. The lake did not open to the public until 1994 because of lack of roads and restroom facilities. Osprey Lake has 14.1 surface acres of water. A single lane concrete boat ramp with car/trailer parking is available.
