We offer several rustic picnic shelters that can accommodate any size gathering. These shelters are perfect for small group picnics or large family and church reunions. Shelters are furnished with picnic tables, fireplaces, playground equipment, drinking water and conveniently located toilet facilities. Picnic shelters may be reserved in advanced through park headquarters.
A new basketball court is located near the swimming pool and equipment can be rented at a nominal fee. Volleyball courts are also located at the swimming pool, as well as the Crum-Morgan picnic shelter.
We offer several scenic trails for hikers. Along these paths, hikers can capture the scenic beauty of the forest and enjoy the many varieties of wildflowers and trees growing in the area. Overhanging rock cliffs can be found along several of these rustic trails. In the past, these cliffs provided shelter for early settlers in the area. Trails range from one mile to three miles in length.
Sportsmen will enjoy the fishing and hunting opportunities available at the forest. For fishing enthusiasts, the West Fork of Twelvepole Creek winds through the forest and is stocked with trout on a monthly basis during the months of February, March, April, and May.
Hunters are permitted on the forest during the respective hunting seasons. Fishing and Hunting licenses can be purchased online at:
