It has all the things a little summer get-away needs: canoes, swimming, theater in the round, camping, fire tower to climb, trout fishing, wading in the streams, some fun little stores, and lots of trails to walk.
Cook Forest Park contains one of the last stands of virgin tree's in eastern USA(The Forest Cathedral ). If you want to take the Longfellow Trail to see it....take some comfortable walking shoes for the little hike up the trail.
Don't forget to visit the Fire Tower and Seneca Point( real close to each other and you can park nearby). Some scenes of the movie "Unconquered" with Gary Cooper were filmed in the park.
Don't forget to take fishing pole for the kids.....Cook Forest has a nicely stocked trout stream impoundment which is free for foungsters 12 and under :)
