About Ferdinand State Forest

In 1933 a local conservation club raised funds to buy 900 acres to build a lake and establish an area to hunt and fish. Today, Ferdinand State Forest is a beautiful place to fish, boat, swim, camp, hunt, picnic and camp. Rent canoes and rowboats from mid-April through October. You may also launch your own boat - motors are limited to electric trolling motors. Hiking trails range from 1.2 to 2.6 miles. Have a mountain bike? Bring it along to take on the 8.8 miles of mountain bike trails.
