2020 COVID-19 Update

Most state park boat rental operations will open this summer. Hours and operating procedures will vary by park. Each park will implement additional safety and sanitation protocols to protect park staff and visitors and encourage social distancing. All boaters are encouraged to bring their own life jacket or approved personal floatation device (PFD).


A one-acre lake with similar species is located on the Meadow Trail near the visitor center. Personal boats are not permitted in the lakes. Boats and fishing are not permitted on the Collins Scenic River section located within the State Natural Area boundary.
