Round LakeThe 58-acre lake at Round Lake State Park was a million years in the making. It is a product of glacial activity dating back to the Pleistocene Epoch.

Camping
Round Lake campsites are shaded all day by towering western red cedar, western hemlock, ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and western larch. Modern restrooms and showers, a dump station, picnic tables and barbecue grills are available.

Habitat
A walk on the two-mile “Trappers” nature trail around the lake will take you under canopies of western white pine, Engelmann spruce, grand fir, Lodgepole pine, black cottonwood, paper birch, red alder and Rocky Mountain maple.

The smaller plant life in the park ranges from those plants that grow in dry conditions (xerophytes) to those that grow in damp and watery conditions (mesophytes and hydrophytes).

Like the plant community, the animal life is varied and includes: snakes, turtles, shrews, pocket gophers, striped skunks, muskrat, mink, short-tailed weasels, beaver, pine squirrels, chipmunks, snowshoe rabbits, porcupines, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, black bear, white-tailed deer and a wide range of birds, from herons to hummingbirds. Find your cisa study materials that you need here.The lake is rimmed with grasses and water lillies, from which bullfrogs sing their evening chorus. It provides food and habitat for brook trout, rainbow trout, largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, yellow perch, brown bullhead and black crappie.

Recreation
Round Lake is relatively shallow, approximately 37 feet at its deepest point. Swimming is an all-day event in its warmer parts. After a full day of swimming, hiking or fishing, the evenings offer cool, quiet and restful hours around a crackling campfire, or the opportunity to attend an informative park-scheduled event. The park offers year-round recreation activities, with cross-country skiing, ice skating, sledding and ice fishing in the winter.
