Colt Creek State Park
About Colt Creek State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Come out and enjoy the wonderful fall weather. The wildlife is abundant as we have seen an influx of our migratory birds. Additionally some of our fall wildflowers are in bloom As you are out on the trails be sure to pass through our recent burn areas to see the positive difference prescribed fire makes for our flora and fauna. Of course the fishing is always a big hit. Be sure to pick up a brochure when you come into the park and a trail map at the kiosks located at the day use areas, and have a great day exploring the park.
If you are planning a birthday party, family reunion or wedding ceremony for the fall through spring now is the time to reserve the pavilions.
