JOY SPRINGS PARK

Description

Located along Joy Springs Trout Stream, Joy Springs Park is a great destination for any trout angler. Just a short drive west of Strawberry Point, Joy Springs covers approximately 90 acres of rolling forested land.

Campers and fisherman lucky enough to discover this park will find land and water seldom bothered by people.  Within the park is a large shelter and five primitive campsites. Primitive camping is available for $15.00 per night, on a first come first serve basis. You can now reserve your favorite campsite online for the 2023/2024 camping season. ONLINE REGISTRATION

PROJECTS:

A 2020 Fish Habitat grant allowed the CCCB the installation of three cross vanes to create pools and structure along two shallow, infilled sections of the stream. The project also included toe rock installed along a 100’ stretch to stabilize the stream bank, 135’ of toe wood for stabilization and habitat, and 40’ of bank hides to provide fish cover. These improvements increased the area’s capacity to hold fish, and spread angler pressure out to mitigate human impact.
