About Oakwood Lakes State Park
Nestled in eight interconnected glacial lakes, the park offers an endless variety of activities throughout the year. Shady campgrounds and picnic areas complement the excellent swimming and boat facilities and offer some of the state's finest views.
The park was once used as a summer camp for the US Army Corps of Engineers during World War II. Later, in 1869, Samuel Mortimer came and built a log cabin that still stands in the park.
The Visitor Center displays an archaeological exhibit of finds from the area, and the Oakwood Lakes State Park trails attract visitors from across the state, as well as residents and visitors to the park. Please inquire about the paths in and around the parks as a general courtesy.
Three hiking trails lead to island trails and several historical sites, and the park also has a horse camp where riders can set up their horses to explore the extensive network of trails in the parks.
Find out more about Oakwood Lakes State Park and its trails on its website, Facebook page and Twitter account.
Visitors can rent canoes and paddle the sea chain, and in July the park hosts an annual family canoe tour.
