About Rockland Recreation Area

This federally-regulated recreation area is located on the shore of Old Hickory Lake in a moderately wooded area and is host to numerous wetland species that occupy the wooded areas along the nature trails. Migratory birds visit the area during the winter months as well as year-round forest birds. The area provides excellent fishing for several species including bass, crappie, walleye, sauger and catfish. The area offers reserveable shelters for day use. The area is also ideal for picnics and boat launches.
