Stephens Lake Park

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you need to be stuck inside, especially during what’s so far been a record mild winter season. There’s plenty of great places to enjoy outdoor activities in when visiting the city, including Stephens Lake Park, a 116-acre park located just ten minutes from our Columbia hotel. Enjoyed by locals and visitors alike, Stephens Lake Park features walking trails, a lake for swimming as well as ice-skating during the winter months, two waterfalls, three playgrounds and a boardwalk for fishing off of. The city’s center for winter recreation, visitors can ice-fish, there’s a designated hill of sledding, as well as heated restrooms, bonfires and more. So get out and play, after all, you’re on vacation!
