|Becklin Homestead County Park / WMA was acquired in 2004 from the Becklin Family who homesteaded the property since 1898. The Isanti County Parks Department along with the state Department of Natural Resources cooperatively own and manage this 294 acre property to provide high quality wildlife habitat and to provide outdoor nature based recreational opportunities. The park is located in Springvale Township 3½ miles northwest of Cambridge along the Rum River.
Some activities at the park include a self guided interpretive trail through old growth white pines, geocaching, multi use trails, wildlife observation blinds, and access to the Wild & Scenic Rum River.
There are currently seven wildlife blinds located throughout the park. These blinds are for wildlife observation and are also available to disabled hunters to pursue wild turkeys and white tailed deer along with waterfowl hunting through the Capable Partners Program.
