Description

Moreau Lake State Park is a secluded retreat, - a calm and peaceful beach and waterfront nestled among thick forestry. From camping to picnicking, swimming to hiking, skiing to fishing, there’s always something for you to do, regardless of the season. 

If you’re visiting exclusively for the beach, during the summer you can rent beach lounge chairs, umbrellas, and fishing gear. If you’re visiting during the winter months, from Labor Day to Memorial Day, and on a weekday, you can even take your camper or motorhome down to the beach area. A vacation rental is also located just off the beach, in case you’re not interested in camping. The rental provides a full kitchen, all your bedding, everything you’ll need for cooking, and even a fireplace. 

The beach is open for swimming Memorial Day through Labor Day. However, if you’re not swimming and just visiting the beach, you may visit at any time. Do note, though, that sometimes the beach is closed due to algae blooms in the summer. Watch for signage that will tell you when it’s okay to swim.

Additional points of interest for visitors include the park’s stopover site for migratory songbirds. Birding is quite popular in the area and you can spot Bald Eagles, hawks, and more. Hunting is also popular in the area during deer season. Family-friendly activities are offered throughout the year, including guided wetland hikes, wildlife viewing, and nature classes for children. 

Household pets are welcomed at the beach and park. They should always be on a leash of six feet or less. Bring your recent proof of a rabies vaccination and be prepared to present it upon arrival. Pets are not allowed in the public buildings or in the bathing areas. If you are camping, you are only allowed to have two pets per site.
