Natural Bridge State Resort Park, Slade

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Slade
Named after the massive rock bridge that forms the centerpiece of the park, Natural Bridge State Resort Park presents a variety of hiking trails and stunning vistas. The park spans approximately 930 hectares (2,300 acres), over half of which have been designated as a nature preserve to protect the array of flora and fauna that live here. You can hike to the 20 m (65 ft) high sandstone arch or enjoy a ride on the sky lift, located just a short walk from the park entrance, that ends within 183 m (600 ft) of the bridge. The park's trails range from moderate to strenuous in difficulty, traversing uneven ground, but you're rewarded with unmatched scenery. The 0.8-km (0.5-mile) Original Trail leading to the natural bridge dates from the 1890s. Keep in mind that hiking off-trail is not permitted.

  • Beautiful park! Nice clean cabins with a fireplace and kitchen with dishwasher and dishes. Fun hiking trails for all ages. There is a big pool. Closes after labor day. Beautiful clean lodge with hotel style rooms and a restaurant. Sunday brunch buffet is good with lots of options including gravy and biscuits.
  • I stayed for a couple of days at the campground for the first time, and really enjoyed it. My campsite was well-maintained and clean. The campground manager, Boyd, was friendly helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. Even though he was extremely busy helping other campers he did find time to talk with me, give me directions, and answer my questions about the area. I plan to make several trips back this fall.
