Danish Alps State Recreation Area comprises a 219-acre lake surrounded by 520 acres of parkland. The area is named for the early Danish settlers in the area. Kramper Reservoir, named for Vince Kramper, was planned with shoreline and both fishing in mind. The area also offers camping, day use facilities and hiking, biking and equestrian trails.



Kramper Reservoir was planned with shoreline and boat fishing in mind. The breakwater on the west shore includes a handicap-accessible fishing pier.

A wide spectrum of aquatic habitat features was incorporated to encourage fish to reproduce and grow rapidly. These include three water quality basins, a wetlands complex, a number of rock breakwaters, unwater shoals, tree and brush piles and diverse water depths. Game and Parks has stocked the lake with largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, channel catfish and walleye.

For more information on fishing opportunities here and at parks across the state, visit the interactive public fishing areas map. This map provides detailed information on available species, regulations, public boat ramps, fish cleaning stations and ADA-accessible boat ramps and docks, among other features in reservoirs, lakes, streams and rivers statewide. Lake contour maps are available for some lakes, as well.


Kramper Reservoir is a no-wake lake. There is a boat launch facility on the west side of the area with two 40-foot docks.


Danish Alps has three day-use areas with plentiful picnic tables, grills and shelters. Day-use area 2 also has a playground.


Hunting is allowed on the area south of 203rd Street from the first Tuesday following Labor Day through the end of the spring turkey season. Special restrictions apply; please refer to the Hunting Guide for more details.


Kramper Reservoir is encircled by two trails – one for hiking and biking and another for horseback riding.
