   Wander through a slice of pre-settlement landscape at Pershing State Park. The park includes a boardwalk and hiking trail that winds through a wet prairie near a meandering stream with oxbow sloughs and cutoffs, and into a bottomland forest. The park’s wetlands attract a variety of birds and waterfowl as well as scores of other wildlife species. Locust Creek and four small lakes give anglers a chance to try their skills and a shady campground with electric and basic campsites makes the park an ideal overnight location.

Their hiking and walking trails are beautiful. Nature everywhere! It is always well kept and clean. Nice small play areas for the little kiddos and it had a great big covered area with a fireplace and room for a large group to hang out. Camping fees aren't too expensive and the river can provide some good fishing if you catch... More

Grill, shelter, playground, woods, walking trails, bridge. We like to be alone together and Pershing State Park is a fine place to cook out on their grill with playground and fish ponds, walking trails in the woods including a bridge and one boardwalk nature trail out across different wetlands. We'll be back.

There is a boardwalk that is 1 1/2 miles long, it has an observatory along the way, it's beautiful. You usually can see a lot of deer. Fall is the best time of year to go, when the leaves are falling.

Our campsite was very nice and we enjoyed walking one of the trails along Locust Creek. Bathrooms were well kept and cleaned on a daily basis. Wished there was a soap dispensor in the bathrooms. Showers had hot water and were very nice.
