DescriptionSpringbrook State Park truly offers something for everyone! The park encompasses 930 acres of rolling hills, mature timber, a small lake and abundant wildlife. The state acquired the park in 1926 and most of the buildings were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
The park is nestled among numerous small communities which provide a variety of dining, shopping and other recreational opportunities. Whether you are here to hike, fish, camp or hunt we welcome you and hope you enjoy your stay!
In addition to hikers and snowmobilers, bicyclists have ample opportunities to enjoy themselves while visiting Springbrook. The Central State Park Bike Route connects Springbrook State Park, Ledges State Park and Big Creek State Park. The 91 mile route is relatively flat, with a few challenging hills as you make your way across the valleys of the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers.
Anglers will find ample opportunities to catch crappie, largemouth bass, bluegill, sunfish and catfish. The lake has three fishing jetties, two docks and a boat ramp. Although gas-powered motors are not allowed, the lake allows electric trolling motors. There is also a boat ramp in the southern portion of the park for access to the Raccoon River, and a trail farther west that takes anglers to a fishing riffle on the river.
For those who like to bicycle, the Raccoon Valley Bike Trail is located 5 miles from Springbrook State Park. The Conservation Education Center, adjacent to the park, holds a number of outdoor skills camps and workshops for kids and adults throughout the year.
