This recreation area is a nice break after driving through some of the larger ones. It has two parking areas, both off of 132nd Street north of Hwy. 370. The path around the lake area is paved, so it would be great for walking, biking,...More

The new Prairie Queen rec area is very nice. My wife and I went fishing there in July 2015 and caught (and released) a lot of pan fish as well as small mouth bass. Had a nice enjoyable, relaxing afternoon. They also have a bike,...More
