Long ago, American Indians harvested wild rice from this lake where today, the shallow waters and marshy edges of Rice Lake attract many waterfowl during migrations. Rice Lake is a major wetland in the area. Visitors enjoy camping under the tall hardwoods, photographing spring wildflowers, picnicking, and birdwatching. For a more secluded camping experience, paddle across the lake and camp in a canoe campsite. Winter activities include cross-country skiing and snowmobiling on the trails.

Campgrounds: The main campground has 42 semi-modern sites on 2 camping loops. Camping is available year-round. There are 3 types of rustic sites available: walk-in, cart-in, and canoe-in. The park's group camp is available year-round.

Electric Sites: There are 16 electric sites in the main campground - all are in Loop B.

Special Notes for RV Campers: The park has gravel spurs that can accommodate RVs up to 55 feet long.
