Rose Lake

The Osceola County Parks Commission has two separate and unique parks in its park system.  They are both situated on a lake, bordered by forest, and offer limitless opportunities for both the sportsman and recreational enthusiast. 

Rose Lake Park, located on Rose Lake, and Crittenden Park, located on Big Lake both offer great fishing.  Other recreational opportunities include camping, swimming, and other day use activities such as picnic tables, playground, pavilions, etc.  Additionally, Rose Lake Park is located near the White Pine Trail and Crittenden Park is located near the Pere Marquette State Trail.

Camping is available by the day, week, month, or season.  You can use the menu bar on the left to view announcements, a map of each
park, and other information.   

Come and enjoy clean, well-maintained facilities and grounds, friendly and helpful staff, great swimming and fishing, and a variety of recreational activities.
