Eau Galle Recreation Area

Eau Galle Reservoir is a 150-acre impoundment surrounded by two day use areas, a beach, two boat launches, one campground and several miles of hiking and equestrian trails. It is located just north of Spring Valley, Wis., 50 miles east of the Twin Cities and 40 miles west of Eau Claire, Wis.

There are electric, non-electric and walk-in tent campsites available. The foot trails provide a scenic and relaxing view of the woodlands and wetlands. These trails will lead you to a variety of places from picnic areas and playgrounds to a sandy beach and volleyball courts.

An abundance of largemouth bass, crappies, bluegills and sunfish provides plenty of action for the angler year-round whether it is from shore or a boat. Eau Galle Reservoir is open to boating but only to non-gasoline powered boats.

Eau Galle Master Plan

The Eau Galle Project Master Plan is a strategic land use document that will guide the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, in the years to come. The plan, while conceptual in nature, will serve as the vision for both environmental stewardship and recreation as the Corps continues to serve the public in the 21st Century.
