Fodor's Review

In the northern end of Savage River State Forest, this 455-acre park was established by German immigrants in the 19th century. The park contains stands of hemlocks and pines planted in the late 1950s and a 13-acre man-made lake. You can swim, fish, and boat here, although low water levels and a profusion of aquatic plants have made parts of the lake unusable. In winter the park's 8 mi of hiking trails are groomed for cross-country skiing. Picnic shelters, 39 campsites,

and 11 rental cabins fully equipped for year-round use are also on-site along with a grand lake house that is suitable for weddings or meetings.
