Description

Webster State Park offers a prairie setting of rolling hills and spacious skies. The park occupies 880 acres contained in two tracts on the shores of Webster Reservoir.

Campers can choose from 77 utility campsites and more than 100 primitive campsites. In addition to boating and fishing, campers at Webster choose from recreational opportunities provided by swimming beaches, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, playgrounds, and a hiking trail. The newest addition to Webster's attractions are the two new modern cabins. Pintail Place, a two bedroom cabin, will accommodate six people while the Bluewing Bungalow, a one bedroom cabin, will accommodate five people.

Five boat ramp lanes and three courtesy docks offer boaters ample launching facilities. Pleasure boating, fishing, water skiing, and windsurfing are popular activities at Webster. Primary sportfish include walleye, wiper, largemouth bass, crappie, channel catfish, and flathead catfish. The park offers floating fishing docks, and there is an easily accessible fishing pier at the nearby stilling basin.
