Get some fresh air!

Take in views of dramatic bluffs set against a sprawling reservoir.

Whether you’re sunbathing on the sandy swim beach, casting a fishing line to reel in walleye and crappie, or enjoying an alfresco lunch in the picnic area, the views at Hawk Springs State Recreation Area in Hawk Springs are spectacular.


Trek along the Rawhide Wildlife Habitat Nature Trail and keep an eye out for white-tailed deer, cottontail rabbits, bald and golden eagles, ring-necked pheasants, beavers, and more than 50 species of songbirds. Explore over 30 walk-in hunting and fishing areas and over 5,607 acres of Wild Habitat Area with over 245 sitings of different species of birds.
