Blackhawk Lake Recreation Area


Blackhawk Lake Recreation Area between Cobb and Highland on County Hwy. BH is the place for family fun or relaxation, with a 220-acre spring-fed lake and 2,000 acres of wooded hills and open meadows. The lake is home to a large variety of fish, as well as waterfowl and shore birds. Native plants provide food and shelter for large and small wildlife and game. In spring and early summer, the park is filled with the music of over 100 colorful songbirds!

Take full advantage of the natural wealth at one of our 133 campsites, with wooded sites and open grassy areas for trailers, RVs, and tents. Hiking trails provide a place for relaxing walks, and playground equipment keeps children busy and happy.

Blackhawk Lake is alive in the winter as well. Shanties appear on the ice in large numbers, and hiking trails become cross-country trails. Call 608-623-2707 for more information.
