Yankee Springs Recreation Area
A modern campground is located on the shores of beautiful Gun Lake while rustic camping is available at Deep Lake. An equestrian campground and a youth organization campground also are available. Nine lakes are located within the park boundaries providing excellent fishing and water sports of all kinds.
As a year-round park, cross-county skiing on its more than ten acres of Nordic ski trails, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing are all popular winter activities. Three special points of interest in the park are: Devil's Soupbowl, a glacially carved kettle formation, Graves Hill Overlook and the Pines, accessible from the extensive trail systems.
Favorite fairweather activities include 30 miles of hiking trails, 12 miles of challenging mountain bike trails, ten miles of horseback trails, as well as two public beaches, picnic shelters and two universally accessible fishing piers one at Gun Lake and one at Deep Lake.
