Canoe Creek State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Canoe Creek State Park is a jewel in the crown of the state park system. At 958 acres it’s small, but it’s loaded with features. There are modern rental cabins, a food concession, and hot showers in the beach changing bathhouse. Canoe Lake is a 155-acre lake that provides crystal-clear, icy cold water for swimming, canoeing, and fishing. It’s stocked with walleye, muskellunge, bass, trout, chain pickerel, catfish, crappies, and other panfish. There is also ice fishing when there is an extended trout season.

This is an easy, pleasant hike where you can explore the limestone kilns used in the early 1900s to supply limestone for the bustling iron and steel industries. Visit an abandoned quarry operation, now a bat colony, then make your way up a knoll for views of the valley. Walk alongside Canoe Creek on its way to Canoe Lake. Both bodies of water are good for fishing."
