Fishing & Boating in this 800 Acre State Park
Lake Macbride State Park
A wet and wild state park set in eastern Iowa, Lake Macbride State Park is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, animal lovers, and those just looking to relax. Less than 20 miles southeast of Cedar Rapids, and 30 miles southeast of Pleasant Creek State Park, Lake Macbride is a top-tier getaway no matter the occassion.
Slap on some sunscreen and get out on Lake Macbride – the 800-acre lake stuffed with walleye, crappie, bluegill and channel catfish, and even the prized Kentucky spotted bass. Boat around the lake by pontoon or paddleboat, and try your hand at water skiing. Enjoy a swim, have a picnic on the beach, or stretch out for some sunbathing under Iowa’s summer sun.
Cyclists, enjoy a smooth, five-mile ride on the Lake Macbride State Park bike path leading from the park’s entrance to the nearby town of Solon. Other multi-purpose trails in the park feature hiking, mountain biking, and wildlife viewing or bird watching – so keep an ear out for the area's many songbirds. During the colder months, Lake Macbride State Park trails are heavy on the snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and winter hiking.
Winter, summer, spring or fall, eastern Iowa is ready to accommodate your adventurous side in Lake Macbride State Park – set north of Coralville.
