It's amazing to spend a sunny day in the woods. There are few trails you can take. The Google map shows there is supposed to be some kind of creek but we didn't find any. The open field near the parking lot has some young trees. You can easily take a picnic blanket and spend the day leisurely watching the green and the sun under a tree. There is a public restroom in the parking lot however the condition was not so good.
used to visit here as a kid, one of the only good memories I have with my fathers side of the family. Loved it so much I moved here
Pretty cool Forest, there are some decent dirt roads and hiking trails. I've never used the shooting range but it looks nice. Not a huge forest but enough to get your "fix" for being in nature
The rifle range has reopened and DNR has done a great job with the update. Please be considerate and safe when using this facility!
