Constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the park offers year-round recreational activities, including camping, picnicking, fishing and trails for hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing. Rustic group cabins can also be rented.
The Turtle River is stocked with rainbow trout, and youngsters can borrow fishing gear at the park office.
Mountain bikers will find a 2.5 mile trail specifically designated for their use. Cross-country ski trails and a sledding hill are popular winter facilities. A heated warming house is open during the winter months.
