Timber Operation-Trail Closures

The Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will be the site of a timbering operation that will take place in the near future as part of the park’s ongoing management of our natural resources as outlined in the Park Management Plan. The operation requires that we close park trails (hiking and bicycling), primitive campsite, and a few regular campsites for visitor safety until the project is complete. We’ll update our post as soon as the project begins and when the resource management zone is safe to return to normal activities. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to protect and preserve our natural resources.
