  • Kayak, standup paddle board, or canoe using your own or rent onsite from Froggy’s Landing Boat Rentals
  • Bring your own windsurfing equipment and set sail from the free lakeside launch area
  • Enjoy a picnic at one of the many picnic areas throughout the park
  • Fish from the shore or on the water during the spring and summer, or try your luck with a cool ice fishing expedition during the winter
  • The paved 2.3-mile path around Lake Andrea is a picturesque circuit for visitors who prefer to tread on solid ground
  • Hikers can explore the natural Hackbarth Trail which winds through woods and wetlands in the northwestern reaches of Prairie Springs Park or venture north out of the park along the Prairie Farms Trail that is bound by farmland and floodplain on each side
