About this Location

Lake Saint Catherine State Park has long been a destination for visitors seeking an area to relax, refresh and recreate. The 117-acre park has been in operation since it opened as a picnic and swimming area in 1953 on the shore of picturesque Lake St. Catherine. The park offers an array of recreation opportunities for campers and day-use visitors alike. These include a 61-site campground, a nature center, two sandy beaches, a large grassy field including a children’s playground, and a snack-bar concession. A boat launch is available for those seeking a day of fishing or water skiing on the lake. A short hiking trail offers visitors a tour of the Big Trees of Lake Saint Catherine and a breathtaking view of Birdseye Mountain.

Prior to state ownership, the area comprising Lake Saint Catherine State Park consisted of a summer camp for boys and farmland. Remnants of these past activities can still be found within the park.
