Also known as the Fred Meijer Nature Preserve, Pickerel Lake Park offers a scenic mix of natural areas to explore along a branching network of trails. The lake itself covers nearly 80 acres and is a great setting for fishing or wildlife observation. One of the best-known features of the park is its 800 ft floating boardwalk that crosses a portion of the lake. The shoreline of Pickerel Lake is undeveloped, being surrounded only by parkland and Camp Rogers to the north.
Beyond the lake shore, trails meander through unique wetlands, sandy woods, and rolling forest hills and valleys. In the winter, the trails are open for cross country skiing. The main restrooms are closed in the off season, but a portable restroom is available at the parking lot.
