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.

Beautiful scenery— although, a little awkward when ending up in camp sites. Easy to navigate. Saw a decent variety of wildlife when I went in early may.

Nice walk in the woods. Nice changes of scenery and terrain (meadow, forest, lakeside).

I would come back! Campers very friendly, camp site is watched. Didn't see any animals or birds during our hiking. I love the woods.

quick hike through the woods. also a small tour you can take from your car. overall worthwhile, but was looking for a little longer hike.

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.
