Clear Lake State Park
From hiking the trails to boating in the sunshine, Clear Lake is a recreational hotspot for Iowans. Located at the heart of the Great Lakes region, Clear Lake offers a great fishing experience, which would not be possible without watershed and shoreline protection. Walleyes, muskie, northern pike, bullheads, catfish, yellow bass, crappies and other panfish can all be found within the lake. The park also offers bird watching, an abundance of trails and modern campgrounds perfect for any family outing.
REAP funding for this project: $2,545,287
