Straight Lake State Park Current conditions


There is still a significant amount of snow at the park for anyone still looking for snowshoeing opportunities. Snow depth will vary in the park with some south facing slopes getting close to bare ground.


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.

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


Rainbow and Straight lakes are frozen over. Please remember, park staff do not monitor ice conditions. There is evidence of a winter fish kill on Straight Lake.


Warmer weather is starting to bring early signs of spring. Robins have been seen in the park. Pairs of geese and swans have been seen on the lakes and river. Eagles, otters and other scavengers can be seen at the dam feasting on the fish kill.


Spring hunting opportunities open in the park on April 1, 2019.
