Park Information

This aptly named park contains interesting terrain carved during the last ice age. Spend a beautiful day fishing, swimming, or boating on the lakes. For history lovers, visit the old lodge and the other Civilian Conservation Corps buildings built during the Great Depression. There are two developed campgrounds and several waterfront backpack/canoe in campsites for the more adventurous.

The Chase Point Trail is the most popular and scenic trail in the park, following the top of a glacial ridge covered in old growth forest and flanked by lakes on both sides. The other trails in the park see significantly less traffic, allowing you to have some quality time with the impressive forest.
