Huge, old-growth stumps are everywhere in the park. There is a giant wooden ball carved from a single log by a local logging legend. Story has it the logger could stand atop the floating ball and "walk it" from one end of the lake to the other. The area is rich with logging lore and history. The park is open year round for camping and day use. The group camp is reservable April 1 through September 30. The area also offers great opportunities for kayaking and paddle boarding.
