    Nestled among eight connecting glacial lakes, Oakwood Lakes State Park provides a never-ending variety of activities throughout the year, from hiking and swimming, to ice fishing and cross-country skiing. Shaded campgrounds and picnic areas complement the park's excellent swimming and boating facilities.

    Plan to stay either at a campsite, with or without electricity, in a cozy one-room cabin or in horse camp. The reservation process is quick and secure with the online system. Guests at Oakwood Lakes State Park enjoy such amenities as the beach, boat ramp, showers, playground and picnic shelter. Canoes and kayaks can be rented for gliding along on the water. For fishermen eager to pull in walleye, perch, northern pike and bullheads, a fishing dock is proved along with fishing poles to check out for use at the park.

    Oakwood Lakes State Park was once used as a summer camp and an annual gathering spot for American Indians. Later, Samuel Mortimer arrived in 1869 and built the log cabin that still stands at the park. The visitor center showcases an archeology display of items found in the area.

    Great park!

    We stayed this past weekend in your park and we fell in love with the spot. We stayed in the horse camp due to they were full, but were so pleased that they accommodated us. It was very quite, nice shade, showers were very nice and clean. I have nothing to complain about besides the water over the road but that is out of anyone's control its just mother nature. All in all we will for sure be back!!

    1st timer

    Our 1st time here was very good! Bathrooms were very clean! Only problem was the vault toilet by the tent area ran out of toilet paper and didn't get refilled until we told them when we checked out.
