Year-Round Fun for Everyone
The park and surrounding state forest invite hikers to discover the plant and animal life of Shawnee's forested hills. The 60-mile Shawnee backpack trail in the state forest takes hikers to some of the best wilderness areas in Ohio. The forest also offers 75 miles of bridle trails. There are several nature trails in the park, from one to two miles in length.
Roosevelt and Turkey Creek Lakes offer public beaches for swimming and boating. Rowboats and canoes are available for rental at Turkey Creek Lake. Boaters may spend a day on the Ohio River with access from the park's marina facility.
The lodge also offers Geocaching on the property. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache hidden at that location. Shawnee has hidden a few cashes throughout the forest and you are able to rent the equipment at the Front Desk of the lodge. You can get started by signing up for an account at geocaching.com.
