Otter Creek Lake & Park is the largest and most heavily used facility managed by the Tama County Conservation Board. The original park property, purchased during the late 1960’s, measured 277 acres and currently houses a multi-use recreation facility accommodating camping, fishing, picnicking, hiking, playground activities, swimming, boating, and nature observation.
Otter Creek Lake and Park has seen an expansion project, the Hansen Addition, starting in 2007. Additional property immediately adjacent to the park to its east, north and partially down its west side has been added bringing the current park acreage to 529 acres. The park also serves as the headquarters for the office and maintenance operations of the Conservation Board and the home of the Tama County Nature Center.
The park serves as host site for many activities such as the N.R.C.S. Conservation Field Day, scouting day camps, school field trips, and youth fishing seminars. It will be the host site for ongoing environmental education activities as construction is completed on the Nature Center and on-site environmental education curriculum is developed.
