A variety of fish make their home in the lake, including black crappie, large mouth bass, pickerel, and various sunfish. Many species of birds live in the park, and there are excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing, including several species of protected fauna.
There are two points of access for boating (with car top vessels only) and fishing.
The park has three marked trails. Two on the lower half of the park and one on the upper, which offer access for hiking and cross-country skiing. Hiking Trails & Map
Once the home of Camp Opportunities, we have worked hard to restore the summer youth programs and renewed efforts to improve the park facilities to better accommodate public use and protect natural resources. We hope that this may bring forth new opportunities for the families of Albany County to enjoy the park throughout the year. With an appreciation that there remains more to do, and an understanding that municipal resources are not unlimited, we have been reaching out to the community for the assistance needed to restore Lawson Lake County Park to its original promise.
Open dawn to dusk
