With 1,361 acres of land ranging from forests and fields to wetlands and two lakes, North Springfield Lake has recreational opportunities for everyone! In the summer months, visitors can swim, sunbathe, and picnic. Anglers can try their luck in the lake, pond, or rivers. A boat ramp is available at Stoughton Pond for small boats, canoes, and kayaks. North Springfield Lake is a popular location for canoeists and kayakers to explore wildlife and the natural beauty the area offers. For those who want to swim, we provide a beach at Stoughton Pond Recreation Area, plus ranger-conducted programs. Stoughton Pond Recreation Area also has a shelter available to rent for day outings. Winter sports such as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing are also popular activities at North Springfield Lake. The staff at North Springfield Lake has recently started grooming cross-country and snowshoeing trails at the West Access off of Maple Street in Perkinsville.
