  • Great hiking area in the winter! Try the old rail cart line! Takes you past the cemetery and splits at the campground.

  • Great state park. Plenty of trails, well maintained. They offer educational courses and host a variety of events like a polar bear plunge, hiking groups, etc. Nice little lake to swim in, would not recommend kayaks since it's so small. Dog friendly and plenty of picnic areas and pavilions to enjoy a party or a cook out.
