At Moraine View State Recreation Area, you can view something very old and something very new. Approaching the park from the south, you’ll see a long high rampart running east to west. The park sits atop this end moraine, a ridge of earth and rock that was left behind by the glaciers as they retreated north at the end of the last Ice Age, some 20,000 years ago. Besides the geology and technology, Moraine View offers some good camping options, as well as fishing, hiking, swimming, and boating. While the 137-site Gander Bay RV campground fills up virtually every weekend during camping season, the walk-in campgrounds are a better choice for tent campers and not as busy.
