ROOKS COUNTY STATE PARK
Description: A small earthen embankment was built in 1937 by the W.P.A. on Boxelder Creek to form Rooks State Fishing Lake. The lake is surrounded by ample shade for fishing, camping, picnicking or just enjoying the scenery at the lake.

The lake periodically goes dry due to irregular inflows.

The entire lake is open year round for fishing, but a portion of the area is closed from Nov. 1 to Mar. 1 to hunting and vehicles to enhance wildlife related opportunities and reduce litter and vandalism that have historically occurred during periods of low use
Camping
Camping:Camping is allowed in the four designated camping areas along the east and west shoreline of the lake. Pit toilets are centrally located on two of the areas and tables are provided at the various sites.

Boating
Boating: Motorized boats are allowed on the lake for fishing activities only. The lake is small, so a no wake speed is recommended. A concrete boat ramp and floating dock are located in the northeast corner of the lake. Be aware of flooded vegetation due to water level fluctuation.
