Spirit Lake Park

Spirit Lake Park is a small , pet friendly park founded in 2005.  This park has four covered pavilions, a playground, a basketball  court, horseshoe pits and pit toilets. There is an outside well for  water.

Currently the pavilions are on a first come-first serve basis.  There is no fee to use the park or the pavilions, but donations are  alway welcome to help with the maintenance of the park grounds  and equipment.

Park hours are from sunrise to sunset, year round. There is  limited winter maintenance outside of plowing the parking area.
