Enjoy lakeside fun at the campground on the shores of the 8,200 acre lake at Green River Lake State Park. If you're a fan of water sports, you're sure to find something to fit the bill, with a sand beach along the lake's edge and a nearby marina offering rental houseboats, ski boats, jet skis and pontoon boats.

After a day on the lake, relax on the lakeshore campground and enjoy a beach just for campers. If you're more of a land-lubber, you'll have your pick of a variety of other activities such as miniature golf, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

Green River Lake State Park offers numerous picnic areas with grills, tables and shelters. Some spots overlook the beautiful lake.
Biking enthusiasts can explore miles of scenic trails. However, be aware that some paths are challenging and require experience.

The park offers both paved roads for leisurely biking and rugged terrain for mountain bikers. Caution is advised.

Remember to wear a helmet at all times while cycling in the area due to potential hazards on certain routes.

Ensure you're well-equipped with water as summer temperatures may soar high making hydration crucial during your ride here.

Night-time riding isn't recommended because there's limited visibility which could lead to accidents or getting lost within the trail system.

Be cautious when sharing pathways; pedestrians also use these areas regularly so keep speeds manageable around others enjoying nature too.

Always check weather conditions before setting out - sudden changes might make tracks slippery or dangerous especially after rainfall events.

Lastly, respect wildlife by maintaining distance if encountered along any route - they're part of what makes this place special!
