Marsh Creek State Park

Marsh Creek State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The highlight of Marsh Creek State Park is obviously the lake. Most park visitors come to boat, sail, or fish. The creek is 535 acres and takes up the bulk of the 1,727-acre park. However, the park also has some really nice hiking trails.

This hike in particular features rolling hills and scenic views of the lake. And because many people are out boating, you shouldn’t experience too much trail traffic. Parts of the park are open to hunting, so be careful when hiking in the fall. Wear orange or hike on Sundays, when hunting is prohibited."
