Chiseled out of the states far northern region is Rock Cut State Park in Winnebago County. Nearby are other "rocky" landmarks - the mighty Rock River and the place where wagons once forded it, Rockford. Its an area of rolling plains, interesting history and recreational variety. Two lakes set off the parks 3,092 acres. Pierce Lake, with 162 acres, is a retreat for people wanting to fish, ice fish or ice skate. A second 50-acre Olson Lake is especially for swimmers. Rounding out the parks recreational options are camping, hiking, horseback trails and cross-country skiing. Whatever the season, you can be sure theres quite a bit of activity going on at Rock Cut State Park.

The running trails near Olson lake are very well maintained and a treat to run on. They can be confusing so I recomend running during cross country season when the trails are painted.

I love walking around the lake! It is always a great view and opens up frequently to get a fresh view of everything. A great park. Looking forward to camping there!
