    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.

    Fantastic Park

    We had stopped in Brookings to have dinner with the grandkids and wanted a place nearby to camp. We favor State Parks and this park looked nice. It far surpassed our expectations. It is really beautiful, right on the water. The spaces are generous and the facilities are very clean and spacious. The lake is beautiful and the trails are lovely. Having electricity was all we needed. Getting water was a little challenge because the water hose at the dump station was leaking and we got wet. We will definitely be back here.

    Love this place

    We were so impressed with the whole campground. we loved the thick wooded area we had our spot in. We will definitely be back but this time for more than 1 night.
