The Rice Lake National Wildlife Refuge is a beautiful mixture of upland and lowland hardwood forest, small grasslands, and marshes. An observation deck overlooks 3,600-acre Rice Lake, where more than 70,000 ring-necked ducks and other waterfowl can be seen during the fall migration.

Picnic tables are located at Mandy Lake and Twin Lakes parking areas, as well as the Rice Lake water control structure fishing area. Mandy Lake Trail, CCC Camp Trail, and North Bog Trail loops are groomed for classic, in-line skiing in the winter months.
