Description

Clear Lake State Park covers a total area of about 55 acres of land and is located in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa. The park abuts Clear Lake City and is a short distance away from Mason City and the town of Ventura which are both bustling urban areas in close proximity to the park. If you want to get to the main entrance to the park, just travel about two miles south of Clear Lake, off IA 106.

One of the main attractions of the park is the access to the 3,643-acre Clear Lake that provides lots of additional recreational activity within the park. As for the rest of the terrain within the park, you will find that there is a wide variety of habitat including rolling land characterized by mature groves of Oak trees and small thickets that provide a natural habitat for small animals. The park also includes the picturesque Woodford Island which is primarily maintained as a wildlife habitat and is also used for sport fishing.

Other activities that can be enjoyed at the park include swimming, lake fishing, camping, windsurfing, boating, sailing, hiking, jet skiing, and water skiing. The facilities within the park to facilitate these activities include more than 10 acres of picnic grounds, several campsites (most of which have electrical hookups, restrooms, and showers), open picnic shelter, day-use lodge, trails, playground, and a swimming beach.

As is the case with all other Iowa State Parks, you can bring your dog into the park at no additional cost. That said, you must follow standard state park rules. Some of the basic rules regarding your dog include ensuring that your dog is always leashed. The dog's leash must be no longer than six feet long. 

Additionally, you must keep your dog from running at large within the park and ensure that the dog is always attended to. If you choose to camp in the park, you should be aware that there is a limit of only two dogs for every dog-friendly cabin or yurt.
