Finger Lakes State Park

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Alt Names

Finger Lakes

Last Known StatusOpen

Once the location of a coal mining facility, this area now offers about 70 miles of ATV trails, a motocross track, full service campground and several lakes to enjoy swimming and boating. Terrain ranges from wide and hardpacked gravel to narrow and twisty ATV trails with occasional tree roots, water crossings and mud and play pits.

The park has several lakes which are open to fishing, swimming and boating. A campground is available which offers full hookups but during the off-season (November through March) the water and shower house is shut off. Firewood is available for purchase at the park office.

Helmets are required for all riders and ATVs must be equipped with an orange whip flag.
