Jackson Lake State Park

This park is an "Oasis in the Plains," for swimming, boating, fishing and waterskiing. But that's not all...

Jackson Lake is ranked one of the "Top 15 Park Beaches" by Reserve America. Anglers, boaters, or naturalists realizing there’s too much fun for just one day enjoy the variety of water or land-based recreation land-based facilities found here.

Birders and hunters flock here because of the parks location in the Central Flyway for migratory birds. Quiet winter months provide hearty wildlife viewers some excellent opportunities to spot the many animals that live here. Jackson Lake is open to camping throughout the year. Bring your dirt bikes and 4-wheelers since the OHV track is open too!

No matter the season, Jackson Lake is, as novelist James Michener suggests, “an oasis of the plains."
