Notice: Little Falls Lake at Willow River State Park will tentatively start the lake drawdown June 1st 2015, which will limit water recreation at the park. DNR is planning to draw down the lake and inspect the dam on the Willow River. The duration of the drawdown will depend on results of the inspection. The Willow River State Park swimming beach, boat launch, and canoe and kayak rental will be closed for the duration of the project. The drawdown will also coincide with a major construction project at the Willow River beach, which will replace the old bath house and restroom building. A new restroom facility and outdoor picnic shelter will be constructed in its place.
