Come on out to Holliday Lake State Park this Saturday for some Fall Fun!
At 4:00 pm, our Conservation Intern, Sharon Grove, will be leading a super fun fall craft project at the Campfire Circle. Bring the kids or grandkids and all their creative energy for some hands-on, nature-themed, one-of-a-kind fun. The cost is $2.00 for supplies. Remember if you’re coming to the park just for the interpretive event, parking is free.
This will surely get everyone in the mood for the Spooky Tales Campfire with Park Naturalist, Dr. Jim Jordan. If you’ve ever been to one of his campfires you can just imagine how fun this one will be. With all the tales and legends he knows about local folklore, he has some really scary ones to share for Halloween! After the spooky tales, we’ll roast some marshamallows. The Campfire program begins at 6:00 pm and it’s free.
Come early to enjoy the Northridge Trail until it ends at the Northridge Trail Overlook, then take a right onto the Lakeshore Trail and loop back to Shelter # 1, you will have hiked about 1 mile. This is a great short hike and you’ll still get to enjoy some wonderful fall color and scenic views of the lake and the surrounding forest. This is a hike I often enjoy on my lunch break and it usually takes me about 15-20 minutes. Perfect for getting some fresh air and abreakfrom the routine.
And as always, the fishing is great too. Our regular fishermen tell me that the yellow perch andbluegill are biting.One of the best places towet a line is right off our T-Dock near the swimming beach.
So there are lots of reasons to visit Holliday Lake State Park in the fall.Come on out and enjoy the park. We’reopen from daylightuntil dark every day.
