This is what 200,000 day old walleye look like!! These tiny fish are going into one of the two fish rearing ponds we use to help manage our fish populations in Lake Icaria! The fish are provided by the DNR fisheries crew and will stay in this pond for about 90 days before the pond is drained into the lake along with all the new little fish!! These tiny fish will eat the phytoplankton and zooplankton that are naturally in the pond. They will grow to 1.5 to 2 inches in 90 days. This is when they start looking for larger prey that they will find in the lake. These same fish will grow to 6 to 8 inches by this fall and will reach keeper size of around 15 inches by the time they are 3 years old!! Hope everyone has some success fishing this season! We're always working to make Lake Icaria your recreation destination!!

04/15/2020

Okay... here we go...
Keep us posted on what you do with a pic or a line!

SEED HUNT
This is the perfect time of year to look for seeds outdoors because most of them can be seen clinging to last year’s stems or on the ground. This activity is for any age and can be done in its entirety or just parts of it.
What you need:
sandwich bags
paper and pencil
soil
How to:
*You choose and set a limited area to look for your seeds such as a route you walk the dog, a trail at the lake, a certain park, around the block or even your own yard. Don’t go on private property without permission though.
*Put one kind of seed in each sandwich bag along with a slip of paper saying where you found it and what kind of seed it is if you know.
*After you have collected all you want… Add ½ cup of soil to each bag, water lightly, seal it shut and place in a sunny window with your info paper beside it. Did it grow, how long did it take to start growing, did it look the way you thought it would, could you recognize that seedling if you saw it growing somewhere, can you find some growing where you found the original seed, are you going to replant it outdoors?

The weather dictates when our camping and boating season winds down...
Today we will be shutting off water to ALL the full service campsites, hydrants and restrooms. The pit restrooms by the Marina and at the north boat ramp will remain open but without running water.
All docks have been taken out except the north boat ramp dock and it will be out sometime this week.
The Marina is also closed for the winter.
The lake is a great place this time of year for renting a cabin, walking the trails, fishing from shore or the pier and hunting.
See ya at the lake!

Water is on at Full Service and all other hydrants at Lake View Campground! Woo Hoo!

03/07/2018

Well, this weather isn't making it feel like spring, but we are starting to think about boating, fishing and camping here at the lake! Just another reminder that we are currently accepting applications for our seasonal positions. Seasonals uaually work 40 hours per week, this includes every other weekend. We are also looking for someone to work as a night person in the campgrounds, this position works from 6:30-10:30 Monday through Thrusday evenings. If you or someone you know would be interested working at the park this summer contact us at the office #641-322-4793 for more information and applications. The ice has been off the lake for about 5 days now and I have already been asked when the docks will be put in the lake. Please keep in mind that we have to get in the water to make that happen! We will start putting in docks in the next couple weeks when we have warm days!!! We are busy working on campground maintenance and improvements for this coming summer! Stay tunned to our page to see some of the improvements as we get them finished. Spring fishing is just around the corner as well, there have already been some catfish caught out of open water! Lets all start thinking spring, and maybe the weather will warm up!

Our new family style cottages are getting closer to becoming reality. We are pretty much done with the planning stages and are excited to move forward to the next step.
We have a challenge for all you Lake Icaria facebook followers...
What do we call the new cottage area and road to it? Cottage Camp and Cottage Road? Well maybe... What do you want to call it? Help us choose a name...give us your ideas!!!

In keeping up with rising maintenance and utility prices, the conservation board voted to raise camping and cabin rates for this following season. I wanted to give you a break-down of what to expect when you get here or get on-line to make your reservations.
Full-service site: was $25/night now $27/night
Electric with water: was $22/night now $25/night
Electric site: was $19/night now $20/night
We will still offer the camping coupon books at the same rate they were in the past. $228.00 for 14 nights ($16.29/coupon). One coupon is good for one night on an electric site. Coupon plus $3 for electric with water, and coupon plus $6 for a full service site. Coupons are only valid for first come first serve camping in either campground. If you purchase the coupon book you will see no increase in camping fees!!!
Cabin rates increased slightly as well. The board decision was to simplify the cabin rate structure.
Full-service cabins will all be $115/night
camper cabins will all be $70/night

This fee increase will not go into effect until April 15th when we open for our regular summer season. If you want to take advantage of the current rates for cabins or reservation camping get out there and book now to save yourself a few dollars!!

Thank-you to all of our wonderful park users! We look forward to seeing you at the lake!!
