Tour the Prairie


Twin Lakes County Park


As per its namesake Twin Lakes Park has plenty of fishing in all seasons! West Twin is restricted to ELECTRIC MOTORS ONLY but will have a new boat access in 2020. East Twin water levels are now under control as a temporary drawdown structure was installed in 2019.The boat landing is usable. Both lakes also have prime ice fishing.

Two campsites are available at Twin Lakes Park, and 2 picnic shelters provide day use and large gatherings. The park staff will be installing Natural Landscape playground features in 2020, and in close proximity on West Twin Lake is planned an up-shore beach area with access to the water.

A newly replanted native prairie area will be managed for outdoor education. Fully development of this site should be complete in June of 2021.
