Bring the whole family to the parks annual ice fishing derby sponsored by the Izaak Walton League of America.  It is Free Fishing Weekend, which means there are no fishing licenses required. Prizes will be awarded and every kid will walk away with a prize! 

Never been ice fishing before? Don't let that stop you! We will offer guidance for those who want to learn. If you do not have your own fishing gear, the park has a limited amount that can be borrowed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Staff will also drill holes in the ice for anyone who asks! 

A warming fire will be roaring at the picnic shelter and warm refreshments will be provided. Talk to staff and learn about the State Park Centennial. The event may be canceled due to severe weather or ice conditions.
