Long ago, American Indians harvested wild rice from this lake where today, the shallow waters and marshy edges of Rice Lake attract many waterfowl during migrations. Rice Lake is a major wetland in the area. Visitors enjoy camping under the tall hardwoods, photographing spring wildflowers, picnicking, and birdwatching. For a more secluded camping experience, paddle across the lake and camp in a canoe campsite. Winter activities include cross-country skiing and snowmobiling on the trails.

Live near by so I hike here often. Both woods and prairie. Deer herd is usually around some where. There are also wild turkeys in the park. Nice campgrounds. Lake is good for canoes and kayaks.

Not too bad. Wish it had longer trails. Good for bird watching.
