Straight Lake State Park Current conditions


There is a few inches of snow on the ground, but not enough for snowshoes. Please use caution on some of the steeper sections of trail or on any boardwalks on the Ice Age Trail due to possible slippery conditions with snow and ice.


Ten hike-to campsites are open. Campers will need to bring in their own water. All sites are first-come, first-served and must be paid for via self-registration.

The campground parking lot is not plowed during winter. Campers can access the campsites from the picnic area lot and follow the Straight Lake Trail.

Campers can use any wood that is dead and down for firewood. Firewood and supplies are also available in the village of Luck.


Both Rainbow and Straight lakes are frozen over. Park staff do not monitor ice conditions.


The forest floor is covered with snow. Deer, grouse, fisher, squirrel and rabbit tracks have all been seen in the fresh snow. If you hike out along the Ice Age Trail along the Straight River, you may even find some otter tracks. Eagles can still be seen along the lake and river valley as well.

More information

Vehicle admission stickers are required at Straight Lake State Park. Admission fees can be paid at self-registration boxes (cash or check) which are located in the picnic area, campground, and 280th Ave. parking lots. Credit and Debit Cards are not accepted at Straight Lake at this time.

The picnic area and 280th avenue parking lots are the only lots plowed during winter. All-wheel-drive (AWD/4WD) vehicles are suggested for visiting the park in winter.
