Only campground-friendly generators will be allowed. Due to the water levels in the lake being low, launching some boats may not be possible. Please call the park for more information.

The Roper Lake hot tub is permanently closed.


Roper Lake State Park has a designated swimming area with a sandy beach on the west side of the day-use island.  It is a great place to cool off separate from lake boating and fishing. Before you head into the water, here are some tips to help keep you safe:

  • The water temperature can vary from temperate in the shallows to near-freezing in open water. Be aware of the water temperature before entering the water.
  • In all situations, swimmers should exercise caution. There is no lifeguard on duty, so swimming is at your own risk.
  • There is no swimming outside of the designated swimming area.
