A fine place to be, especially in summer, Lakefront Park is on the northwest shore of Round Lake. In the warmer months the sandy beach here is patrolled by lifeguards, and the park also has a boat launch and extensive open space shaded by mature trees. The lakefront season runs from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. Complementing the beach is a scenic overlook, a playground and picnic shelters.
This 1,226-acre expanse of woods, prairie and wetlands was inhabited by the Potawatomi Native Americans until the 19th century. Grant Woods also encompasses a piece of the north shore of the enormous Long Lake, and there’s a public boat launch here for kayaks, paddle-boards, canoes and car-top boats. There are more than six miles of gravel trails in this gently undulating landscape, open to hiking, running, bicycling and cross-country skiing in winter. Snowmobile riders can also discover Grant Woods in the cold season, along 4.5 miles of trails that link with trails on adjacent land.
