Wabasis Lake Park

Activities and Facilities

wabasis beach
Swim Beach
Wabasis Lake Park offers a large, sandy swim beach at no charge to visitors. For more information, follow the Beach link.

Boat Launch
The park also offers the only public boat launch on Wabasis Lake. The recently reconstructed launch has four lanes, a shoreline dock with tie-offs and ample parking. Upon entering the park, take the first left and continue on until you reach the launch area. Here's a link to a map of Wabasis Lake showing depths.

wabasis fishing
The park includes 1.1 miles of shoreline on Wabasis Lake. The lake itself covers more than 400 acres and is nearly 60 feet deep at its deepest point. Fish found in Wabasis Lake include black crappies, bluegills, large and smallmouth bass, rock bass, walleyes and yellow perch. Much of the park's shoreline is wooded or wetlands, but there are some areas that provide easy access for fishing, particularly north of the boat launch. The boat launch itself also provides easy access to offshore fishing.

wabasis playground
Wabasis Lake Park offers four separate playground structures. One is within the campground and available to campers only. General park visitors will also find playgrounds at the beach, near the enclosed shelter, and near the open shelter, basketball court and ball diamond.

Sledding is allowed on a hill near the entrance to the park.
wabasis lake picnics and events
Picnics and Group Events
Wabasis Lake Park has two picnic areas, an open picnic shelter, and an enclosed shelterhouse that are available for picnics and other group events such as weddings, meetings, reunions and parties. All of these may be reserved for a fee. If picnic areas or the open shelter are not reserved, they are available first-come first-served for no fee.

wabasis trails
In addition to connecting various areas of the park, natural-surfaced trails also provide access to scenic views and natural areas. The longest trail stretches about a half-mile, running between the beach parking lot and the spring house near the boat ramp.

Baseball and Softball
As you enter the park, stay to the right to reach the park's ball diamond. 

Sand Volleyball
Between the beach parking lot and the beach itself you'll find a sand volleyball court, which is open for use on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The main basketball court is adjacent to the parking lot for the ball diamond and open shelter, in the southwest corner of the park. A second half court is also available adjacent to the beach parking lot.
