Grahams Island State Park

Grahams Island State Park is located on the ever-changing shores of Devils Lake. This hidden treasure is heavily wooded and surrounded by miles of lakeshore.  Campers will enjoy the large shaded campsites, in one of the only nonseasonal campgrounds in the area. 

The unique landscape of the lake makes it a hot spot for world-class fishing. The park hosts numerous national and regional fishing tournaments during the year. Grahams Island caters to anglers with an array of resources including a bait shop, a four-lane boat ramp, and a fish cleaning station.

Visitors can enjoy a day on the lake, take a stroll on the hiking trails, swimming at the beach or hang out at the visitors center. In the winter, visitors can explore over 3 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails, explore the park on snowshoes and have excellent access to the lake for ice fishing activities.

Grahams Island State Park is home to four seasonal camping cabins. The Bass, Perch, Pike, and Walleye cabins are all situated next to one another on top of a hill, giving visitors beautiful views of the lake.
