Fowlers Hollow State Park
Description - In the late 1800's, the picnic area was the site of a sawmill that supplied lumber and bark products to the forest industry. Today, Fowlers Hollow State Park offers camping for tent and RV camping, a picnic area with shelter, a children's playground, trout fishing opportunities and miles of hiking trails which traverse Tuscarora State Forest. Cross-country skiing is enjoyed in winter. The park's campground is especially favored by hunters because of the quick access to Tuscarora State Forest.

Fowlers Hollow has parking facilities and a comfort station and serves as a trailhead for snowmobiling in the state forest. The 46-mile trail network is open daily after the end of antlerless deer season in late December.
