Medoc Mountain State Park

Serenity seems to pervade Medoc Mountain State Park, enhanced by gentle Fishing Creek and a scenic open meadow that spreads from the picnic grounds. Anglers and paddlers are drawn to Fishing Creek—considered to be one of the cleanest streams in the region—that flows for about 2.5 miles through the park. Some of the park’s ten miles of hiking trails wander along the creek; others climb several hundred feet to the upper reaches of Medoc Mountain. Roughly ten miles of bridle trails and trailhead parking serve equestrians. The 34-site campground has RV-friendly sites and bathhouse, and warm-weather group camp facilities are nearby. Rangers offer free interpretive programs and hikes.
