“Ice Fish in the Winter”

The nature enthusiast will appreciate the abundance of wildlife, birds, butterflies, and wildflowers among the lakes, creeks, forests, and meadows. Nearly all outdoor recreation activities are possible: Fishing, boating, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and camping. Most parks are open year round creating opportunities for winter recreation. Snowshoeing, tubing, and ice-fishing are just some of the things to do during the winter season. Please note, if you are interested in Ice Fishing there is a mandated thickness of 9 inches of ice before the park opens up for the seasonal fishing.  Hiking a trail is one of the best ways to get to know a park, and 22 of our 35 parks have established trail systems. Whether you are interested in an easy and quiet nature hike or if you want a more adventurous experience, hit the trail in a State Park. One of the best ways to experience a state park is is by camping under the stars. Different camping opportunities are available and whether you like to roll out your  sleeping bag or curl up in your RV, state parks has it all.

My husband, my dog, and I took a road trip to Yellowstone NP in May of 2015. We tent camped along the way at various state parks and Sugarite Canyon SP was my favorite! The man at the visitor's center was very nice and helpful. He gave us a lot of interesting information about the park and he made excellent suggestions for where to camp (Soda Pocket campground) and for where to see wildlife and beautiful scenery within the park. When I told him I was a birder, he also told me where I could see some interesting birds and he even put out extra birdseed at the feeder in front of the office for me. I got several life birds just at the seed feeder and the hummingbird feeder since I'm from the Southeast and most of the birds I saw were Western species! The Soda Pocket campground was very well maintained and had beautiful views. There are also a few short hiking trails at the campground where I saw mule deer and wild turkeys. The camp hosts were very nice and helpful as well! I hope we can return to Sugarite Canyon SP one day.
