Rush Lake is the largest prairie pothole marsh east of the Mississippi River, making it quite a unique landscape in Wisconsin. This has resulted in the lake being shallow and marshy, with surrounding wetland areas. Rush Lake actually only has around 1% hard bottom, the rest is covered in a soft mulch that reaches 20 feet deep in some places. The marsh is very significant to the lake, so much so that it got its name from the surrounding bullrush and cattails that help to make up the extensive wetland in the area.

In 2008 Rush Lake went through a huge restoration project to bring it back to the health that locals and visitors used to know, and it was very successful. Today, a huge number of recreational activities take place on the water on a daily basis, and the fish and wildlife in the area are plentiful and healthy. This has given a new lease of life the area, with many people eager to search for an RV rental in Winnebago County and see what adventures the lake holds. Other nearby towns you could consider staying in or visiting include Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, Appleton, and Ripon.

Discover Rush Lake

Getting Outdoors

Boating is a popular way to pass the time when motorhome camping at Rush Lake. People are able to bring kayaks, canoes, skiffs, and small motorboats, as long as they have marsh engines. By heading out onto the water in a boat, it will allow you to see parts of the ecosystem that are impossible to get to when on drylands, such as some of the wetland areas and hard to get to parts of the shoreline. It is a great way to see the landscape from a different perspective while also getting some exercise and having fun with friends and family.

Due to the many fish returning to Rush Lake waters after the restoration, the anglers have also returned, and can often be seen trying their luck for a catch. Anglers are able to fish for northern pike, crappie, bluegill, and large and smallmouth bass, mostly from boats in the water. People come in friend groups, as a family outing or individually, but almost always come away with a catch. Rent a camper near Rush Lake to have easy access to the waters.

Bird watching is exceptional at Rush Lake and brings visitors from all over the state and further afield. Just make sure to bring your binoculars next time you are camping at Rush Lake, as you have a very good chance of spotting a range of bird species such as American coot, black tern, and common Moorhead. If you have the patience, there is even a chance to spot some rarer creatures like red-necked grebe and forester's tern.
