The park began as a federal recreation demonstration area in the 1930s when workers from the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Project Administration constructed roads, bridges, group camps, and a picnic shelter. Two national historic districts are located within the park: Camp Sherwood Forest and the Cuiver River State Park Administrative Area. They were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. The state took possession of the park in 1946.

Rode with my daughter to drop my grandson off at his 5th grade camping trip. The school reserved the Sherwood Forest camp grounds and it looked to be very well set up. The buildings were very rustic but we'll maintained. The cabins were grouped into little "villages". There was also an athletic field central to the cabins where the teachers and teen counselors could set up games and contests for the campers. Finally, I was very impressed with the overall condition of the facilities.
My friends and I had a great time renting some paddle boats. The park is pretty large, but everything is labeled really well. They just laid down new roads in the park also. It's a smooth ride if you just want to coast a little in a sunday!
