Description: Oak woodland state park and recreation area on the west shore of Big Spirit Lake. Also known as Marble Beach Recreation Area, because a small part of the area is open to public hunting in season (but seldom used).

Habitat: Mostly oak woodlands maintained in park-like conditions, but also some grasslands and conifer and brush plantings between the camping areas and M-49.

Directions: From downtown Spirit Lake, follow the main street north, winding around the NW side of East Okoboji Lake. Turn west on Co. Highway M-49 at the T-intersection on south shore of Big Spirit Lake. Continue west and north to the entrance of Marble Beach RA on the east side of M-49.
