Great beach, beautiful views and very large playgrounds. Offer a lot of shelters to have birthday parties, family reunions, etc. Grills available. This is the best park. Good fishing as well

This is a great little lake outside of Spring Valley. We go there many times each year for a quick kayak paddling or fishing excursion after work or in the early morning.

We stayed in the Army Corp of Engineers campground in our travel trailer. This is one of the best state park campgrounds we've experienced in Wisconsin or Minnesota. The sites are very generously spaced and wooded between so you're not camping with your neighbors. Most...More
