Come and have fun at the 2nd Explore the Hollow Special Trails weekend October 19-20. Events have unique poker rides, potlucks and group campfires.

If interested in renting either the modern cabin or rustic cabin for a “get away” weekend go to www.midnrreservations.com or call 1-800-44-parks. It’s easy and fun to rent a cabin w/pickett poles overlooking the lake. If you want to bring your dogs along to the rental cabin, it is now allowed for a $10 fee. Also new for 2018, SHSP offers 5 walk-in rustic lake camping sites and an equestrian site is in the works!
