Situated on the meandering Turtle River, Turtle River State Park is located in a beautiful wooded valley. 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.

Great place to hike for a few hours. Well maintained with a few small senic views here and there. No real chance to go out and get lost though if that's what you are looking for.

Nice walk, sometimes a little narrow-but good trails.

We did this hike today. Had a great time! We even saw a deer. Definitely gna go there again!

Nice, easy trail with a few small inclines. The mosquitoes can be unrelenting however so if you go when they're out, make sure you bring lots of bug spray and be ready to reapply frequently. Overall though, especially considering the area, it's a nice little park.

pros: pretty area, beautiful foliage, great trails - looking forward to cross country skiing this winter
cons: you can hear the highway, dogs must be leashed, MOSQUITOES - worth waiting until it gets too cold for them

Nice trail with a few inclines. Need bug spray. Most of the trail is shaded by wood cover. $5 parking fee.

It gets five stars because it is the only decent single track you can ride in the County. Convenient if you're on the AFB too.
