Rice Lake State Park is quiet and restful. That is one of the reasons why we like it so much. The other reason it has many different hiking trails, walking in woods, next to the lake, or on open prairie. There are not any hills so it is all pretty level. We see many different types of birds, waterfowl, as well as deer. The campground has two loops, A loop is all non-electric and B loop, electric. The restroom and showers are located in A loop and are kept stocked and clean. I would not recommend this campground for people who have big rigs. Most sites are shaded with the exception of a few sites in B loop where you will get full afternoon sun. There are waterfront sites available but they are for walk-in tenting only. If you do like to tent these sites are very nice! Since this is a state park with majority of it forested do expect mosquitos and ticks while out hiking the trails. Also, during duck season, hunting is allowed. If you do decide to camp during duck season be prepared to hear the noise of gun shots and would be to your advantage to stay away from trails along the lake. We camped at Rice Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Spots are almost always available here. However, very few sites are sufficiently level for a motorhome. On the B loop (electric loop) site 20 is the best for a MH followed by 19, 18 and 17. The others are either too small or too tilted to level without your wheels hanging in the air. There is no dump station at this park any more. Showers and restrooms are in the non-electric "A" loop, are old and dark but kept clean. Nice hiking trails but the woods are very buggy - big flies and hungry mosquitos abound. Poor cell phone coverage in the campground. Most sites don't have good "run around" room for kids - Site 20 has a great "back yard" though. We'd stay here again for an overnighter if we needed a place, but we would not think of this as a "destination" for a week. (Most needed improvement is to regrade sites to be more level side to side and front-to-back. ) We camped at Rice Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
