Protecting Public Health and Safety


Sly Park Recreation area offers something for everyone! The center piece of SPRA is Jenkinson Lake, providing opportunities to swim, fish, water ski or take part in a variety of paddle sports activities. Sorry, no personal watercraft. If you prefer the dry land, the lake is surrounded by over 9 miles of trails that accommodate hikers, bikers and horses. The trail system winds through thick forested areas and open meadows while closely following the lake shore around the entire perimeter. Perhaps relaxing in the shade is your ideal activity, we have you covered there as well. Scattered throughout the park are a variety of Day Use areas which are excellent picnic or cookout locations. All Day Use Areas are in close proximity to the lake and have access to picnic tables, restrooms and drinking water.

 If one day is just not enough, camping opportunities at SPRA abound. We have over 190 individual camp sites in ten different campgrounds, six different Group camp sites, an Equestrian campground, an Event Center and a youth group campground, Scout Hill. The campsites and Group Areas can accommodate tents to trailers or RV's. Check our Reservation page to get a site description to see which site will accommodate your needs.
