The campground, run by Crawford County, is a series of loops near the causeway. Like most Corps facilities, the 333-acre Woodcock Creek Lake offers fine fishing for muskies, northern pike, panfish, walleyes, and largemouth and smallmouth bass. If you want to keep your feet on solid ground, Bossard Nature Study Trail, located on the north side of the lake, has markers identifying 198 tree and shrub species and two observation blinds where you can sit and watch for wildlife. About 1,000 feet of the trail is paved. Hikers, walkers, and joggers can also follow an access road that traverses the top of the dam, nearly 1 mile across, to enjoy some spectacular views.
