Doyle Memorial State Recreation Area
Located on Green Lake, Doyle Memorial is leased by the city of Wishek. The area is popular for camping, fishing and boating. The park, established in 1925, is named after J.J. Doyle, who donated the land for a park. Doyle was a member of the first village board when Wishek was established in 1898. He served in the North Dakota House of Representatives from 1909-1915. Early park development was undertaken by the WPA in the 1930s, including tree planting and the construction of a pier. Most of the development, however, took place in the late 1960s and '70s, under the leadership of the Wishek Wildlife Club with state grants from the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation. Although Doyle Memorial is one of the smallest of North Dakota's state parks, it offers great opportunities for picnicking, camping and water recreation.
