Lake Greeson was formed when the Narrows Dam was built on the Little Missouri River in 1950. The dam and lake were the result of the efforts of Martin White Greeson for whom the lake was renamed around 1976. Until that time the lake was known as Narrows Lake. Lake Greason has great fishing for Hybrid striped bass, black bass, crappie, bream, catfish, white bass and smallmouth bass. Lake Greeson is also stocked with walleye. The Little Missouri River, above and below Lake Greeson, is stocked with rainbow trout.

Lake Greeson has 45 miles of Walking, Nature and Cycle Trails.
