Long Lake State Recreation Area is made up of 30 acres of rolling sandhills and a 50-acre natural sandhill lake. The area offers fishing, camping, picnicking and hunting access.
Long Lake offers fishing opportunities in both the summer and the winter months. Bullhead and northern pike are the primary fish species caught.
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.
All boats are welcome on Long Lake, but there is a 5 mph speed limit. There are no docks or ramps.
Long Lake is a good waterfowl hunting spot, with abundant shoreline vegetation that doubles as a natural blind. Grouse can be found on the area, as well.
The area has three picnic tables.
Primitive camping is available at Long Lake.
A park entry permit is required and may be purchased at statewide Game and Parks offices and permit vendors or in advance of your arrival online.VIEW ALL PARK FEES
