There's always something happening at Lake Red Rock! Check out these upcoming activities:

Red Rock: The Town Beneath the Lake on August 16, 7 p.m. at the Red Rock Visitor Center

The town of Red Rock was a thriving, industrious community and home to many pioneering people. Once hopeful that the Red Rock Dam would save them from the Des Moines River's frequent flooding, it eventually sealed their fate.

Building the Red Rock Dam on August 17, 10 a.m. at the Red Rock Visitor Center

In March 1969, the Des Moines River Valley changed forever as the newly constructed Red Rock Dam closed its gates for the first time, creating the reservoir we know as Lake Red Rock. Join a park ranger to learn how the dam was built and how it changed the Red Rock area.

Let's Go Paddling! on August 17, 1-3 p.m. at Roberts Creek East Boat Ramp
