Lake Black Hawk
Angling is a popular pursuit at Black Hawk Lake. Channel catfish, crappies, walleyes, bluegills, sunfish and several types of bass abound and provide a challenge to anglers of all ages. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources provides boat launching ramps on the lake. Three are located within Black Hawk State Park.
Swimming is allowed only in designated areas.
Black Hawk Lake lies off the southeast tip of the town of Lake View in Sac County, Iowa. Black Hawk Lake was formed many thousands of years ago by glacial action. In fact, it is the southern-most glacier-formed lake in Iowa. The lake's 957 acres which adjoins the state park, and the many services provided within the town of Lake View, all combine to provide a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities to the public.
Special Regulations: Walleye - 15 min length, daily bag limit of 3
