Description: The roar of ATVs and off-road motorcycles combines with the peacefulness...
The roar of ATVs and off-road motorcycles combines with the peacefulness of rolling hills at Finger Lakes State Park, one of two ATV parks in the state parks system. Built in a former coal mining area, Finger Lakes’ trails and motocross track are popular with users who come for the day, but often fall under the spell of the spacious campground, leafy trees and hilly terrain. The park is also the site of the state’s newest mountain bike trail, the challenging 2.25-mile Kelley Branch Trail, scheduled to open in Spring 2011.

Lots of loud ATVs-not meant for quiet family camping in spite of the scenic, peaceful appearing surroundings.

We were looking walking trails and wildlife. We walked to the "beach" and found it pretty small. I think we would have enjoyed the park more had we had our kayaks.

one can camp. there is a small beach for swimming. moto-cross track. can be a bit noisy due to all the dirt biking. one of 4 state parks that welcome dirt bikes. watch out for the park nazi's. they are pretty strict. make sure you know the rules & follow them

What a great park! They have tracks for ATVs and dirtbikes that you can also go hiking on, and a neat little concrete "pump track" which is made for bikes, but fun for skateboards too. We were there for the kayaking, though. Getting in the water was easy and the water trails are clearly marked with colored buoys. We didn't... More

Stopped here to check out this park because of its namesake in NY. Great park with camping facilities and several small lakes for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. The highlight of this park are the accommodations for ATVs, motocross and bicycles. Lots of different acivities.

Great place for practice shooting! Especially free, and... Free targets I'm going to try and leave a couple bucks When I use the supplied targets. Even though people will likely take the $$$

We love to go to Finger Lakes and Kayak! It is so beautiful. It would be peaceful without the dirt bike trails, but you can ignore it. Or go out early when most of them are sleeping. There is a gun range along with camping. It's a good place to escape to for a few days of nature.

My husband uses the VA for his healthcare. We lived in Columbia, MO until he retired last year. The VA services in Springfield,IL do not begin to compare to Truman, so we make the journey to Columbia every 3 months. We had visited Finger Lakes while we lived in Columbia, but never availed ourselves of the campground. There are not... More

If your an outdoors person there are a variety of things to do here. Look it up on line to make sure something is open and the gun range is always busy.

we drove around this park. Very beautiful, clean and many lakes to see. There was camping and hiking trails, separate trails for dirt bikes and 4 wheelers. We enjoyed this park a lot. We are planning to go back to do some canoeing.
