During the winter months, two state parks offers day use ice fishing huts for rent. These huts were constructed by the Department of Fish and Game as part of the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Program. These huts are for fishing only; there are no sleeping accommodations.

Ice huts are placed on, and removed from, the lakes when the ice thickness warrants it. This varies from year to year, but generally, the huts are available from December through March. They have a wood-burning stove and four fishing holes. All other equipment and supplies must be provided by the user. Firewood and ice augers are not provided, so please bring your own. Latrines on shore are open for use. Check-in/check-out time is 12:01 am to 11:59 p.m..
