The rolling hills of beautiful Springbrook State Recreation Area abound with deer, red and gray fox, coyote, raccoon, beaver, muskrat and wild turkey. Almost every kind of bird that visits Iowa can be found here. Trails lead through 920 acres of prairie and woodland, near small ponds, the Middle Raccoon River and the beautiful spring-fed 17-acre, artificial lake. The state acquired the park in 1926 and most of the buildings were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Springbrook truly offers "something for everyone!"
