Maplewood State Park


The maple forest turns brilliant shades of orange, gold, and red in the fall.

Eight major lakes and many ponds offer water lovers places to swim, fish, boat, and simply relax.

Lake Lida has a sandy beach and large picnic areas for visitors.

Drive along the scenic route to observe the wildlife: the park is host to 150 bird species and 50 species of mammals.

The extensive trail system attracts hikers, horseback riders, and cross-country skiers.
