Afton State Park takes winter recreation very seriously, and it’s a popular time of year to visit and camp. There are 18 miles of cross- country ski trails and 6 miles of winter hiking and snowshoeing trails, as well as a sledding hill. It’s also next to Afton Alps, a large downhill ski resort. Warmer months bring out hikers to visit the 20 miles of hiking trails or 5 miles of horse trails. Those who enjoy mountain biking can also visit the Afton Alps resort, which has mountain biking trails. The campground’s rustic sites are set apart from one another for maximum privacy, and are all at least a 0.75-mile hike in from the parking lot. The campground is pack- in, pack- out, so plan to haul out your garbage. Pets are allowed.
