Located in Loveland just north of Highway 34, Boyd Lake State Park has something for everyone: boating, fishing, picnicking, swimming, hiking, biking, and hunting.  The park also features campsites accommodating tents, pick-up campers, trailers and motor homes, picnic areas, volleyball court, horseshoe pits and playground area.  Pets are allowed on Boyd Lake State Park but must be kept on leash at all times.  Spring walleye fishing is popular here.  Try baited jigs, spinners, Kastmasters and worms.

The Main Boat Ramp is a six-lane ramp located at the Marina at the east end of the marina parking lot. The Heron Cove Ramp is used to launch small craft. The Main Ramp is used to launch larger craft. To avoid the invasion of nuisance species, the park requires all watercraft undergo official inspection before launch at either ramp. Inspections are performed at the Main Boat Ramp only.
