Know before you go. Whether you're spending an hour or a day, remember the key three:

  1. Plan ahead. Download maps in advance so you can minimize contact.
  2. Be prepared. Bring your own water, soap, hand sanitizer, disinfectants, towels and toilet paper.
  3. Follow the rules. Follow federal, state and MDH/DNR guidelines. Observe cleaning protocols, follow directional signage and practice social distancing--even outdoors.

The 385-acre Greenleaf Lake State Recreation Area (SRA) is open to the public for day use only. There are no facilities. Visitors can see portions of Greenleaf and Sioux lakes along with several wetlands. Good panfish and largemouth bass fishing. Sioux Lake is shallower, and supports significant waterfowl populations.
