Wilcox Memorial Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"In the town of Milan, a group of farm buildings that once belonged to Mrs. Frederick P. Wilcox dates back to the eighteenth century. They fall within the boundaries of Wilcox Memorial Park and today the 615 acres belong to the public. It’s a sizeable piece of land with two small lakes—one for swimming, the other for fishing and boating. The small campground climbs a low hill, with tent sites at the top and trailer hookups at the bottom near a baseball diamond and a playground. Several comfort stations are scattered through the park, but the lone bathroom in the camping area only includes a single sink and shower for men and the same for women. In spite of the tight quarters, each restroom also has paper towels, outlets, and soap. During the hottest months, families tend to congregate around the water, but a paved walking path and approximately 5.7 miles of trails with views of Stissing Mountain to the east can be hiked in spring, summer, or fall."
