McCormick's Creek State Park
Description - Originally a little over 350 acres in size, McCormick’s Creek State Park has grown to its present size through acquisition of surrounding farms and homesteads as they come up for sale. Much of the park’s building improvements came in the 1930’s when the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) was in the park. The CCC men constructed most of the shelter houses, the old stone bridge, and the firetower. Another surge of development came in the early 1970’s when the present campgrounds, nature center and swimming pool were added. Today the park is a delightful combination of history set in up to- date modern surroundings.
