Independence Lake Park and Blue Heron Spray Park

Independence Lake County Park offers a multitude of recreational activities for park visitors, and features diverse habitats including wetlands, prairies and great stands of oaks. The summer months feature swimming, boating and fishing, as well as picnicking, hiking, biking and rollerblading. The park offers a launch site for canoes, kayaks and motorized boats with ten or less horsepower (paddleboats and rowboats are available for rent). The fun doesn't stop once the summer season is over - this park is open year round! From groomed trails for cross-country skiing to snowshoeing or ice fishing, Independence Lake has something for everyone to enjoy.
