Outdoor Recreation

Picturesque landscapes will bring you here, but acres of unspoiled nature and waterways will keep you coming back.

The county’s 8,000-plus acres of wildlife sanctuaries, nature preserves, parks and campgrounds and public and private campgrounds provide miles of hiking trails and plenty of places to camp, hunt and even hang-glide. Canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating and bird-watching await the water and nature enthusiast on 100 acres of freshwater lakes, eight public boat ramps, a well-maintained county marina, and miles and miles of rivers and creeks.
