Mirror Lake State ParkNature

Mirror Lake is surrounded by pine and oak woods and beyond there are sandy prairies and former farm fields that are now rich natural wild flowers, shrubs and trees.

The Mirror Lake Pine Oak Forest, in the northwest corner of the park, is designated as a state natural area.

PrairieMany kinds of wildlife are abundant and easily observed. Others are scarce or quite shy and require careful observation techniques to be seen.

The most often seen mammals are deer, raccoons, squirrels, bats, chipmunks and muskrats. Less often seen are beavers, mink, red foxes, cottontail rabbits and coyotes.

The marshes, fields, open woodlands, lakeshore and steep valleys are home for different types of bird life.

Walking quietly, stopping often, listening and watching carefully are the best ways to view wildlife. Be sure to bring your binoculars!
