Things To Do

Overview

With 1,361 acres of land ranging from forests and fields to wetlands and two lakes, North Springfield Lake has recreational opportunities for everyone! In summer months, visitors can swim, sunbathe and picnic. Anglers can try their luck at the lake, pond, or rivers. Two boat ramps are available, and this is a popular location for canoeists to explore the beauties of North Springfield Lake or Stoughton Pond. For those who want to swim, there is a beach at Stoughton Pond Recreation Area, plus ranger conducted programs. Winter sports such as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing are also popular activities at North Springfield Lake. The lake is home to many vertebrates (mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish) and invertebrates (insects, spiders, crayfish, and other creatures). So, Corps biologists and rangers work closely with state and federal agencies to insure healthy fish and wildlife populations.
