Walgren Lake State Recreation Area

 

Park Snapshot

Summary

Located 2 1/2 miles east and 2 1/2 miles south of Hay Springs on graveled roads, Walgren Lake is a scenic camping area that deserves attention.

A rock shelterhouse is available at Walgren Lake SRA on a first-come, first-served basis, and the area's 50-acre lake, which has a 5-mph speed limit, features a handicapped-accessible fishing pier and two boat ramps and boat docks.

Attractions

Mature, shady cottonwood trees are scattered throughout Walgren's 40 campsites, but no electricity is available. The lake contains black bullheads, bluegills, largemouth bass, walleyes, white crappies and yellow perch, but the heavy vegetation usually limits fishing in late summer.
