Seasonal activities in Huntington State Park

In-Season

Swimming

Huntington State Park also features a sandy beach on the reservoir, making it the perfect place to soak up the sun on a summer day and relax after a day out on the water.

You can rent life vests from the park if you have young children. There are also picnic tables conveniently located nearby so that you can have lunch and enjoy the spectacular views of the water and the mountains on the horizon.

Swimming is excellent from late April until September. The reservoir is fairly small, so there can be some crowding during peak times in the summer. Try to get to the beach early if you want prime real estate.

Enjoying Water Sports

If you want a more active time out on the water, you’ll be able to partake in a wide range of water sports at Huntington State Park. Motorized boats are allowed, so water skiing is a popular choice for visitors to the park. The boat ramp makes the lake easy to access.

You can also paddleboard, use a canoe, or go out onto the water on a pontoon boat. Kayaks are available for rental and allow you to explore the reservoir on your own.

Fishing

The reservoir at Huntington State Park offers excellent fishing year round. The boat ramp makes it easy to get out onto the water. Once you’re on the lake, you’ll be able to catch a wide variety of fish species including largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, and trout.

Fishing tends to be best during the period of April to September, when the fish tend to be more active. However, the peak fishing period for each fish can vary. Come at different times throughout the year to get a whole new experience each time.

Off-Season

ATVing and Snowmobiling

If you want a higher speed tour around the area, consider bringing an ATV or snowmobile. When you are camping at Huntington State Park, you can access ATV trails directly from the park. Use your campground as your home base as you explore the rest of the park and the surrounding area.

If you are camping during winter months, always check for ice before going out on an ATV. If there is snow on the ground, you can also use a snowmobile to travel around the park and the nearby trails.

Ice Fishing

If you plan a trip during the winter months, you may be able to ice fish. Put on your heavy winter gear and head out of the rig and onto the lake to see if you can hook an unsuspecting fish. You’ll find bluegill, trout, largemouth bass, and catfish. The fish are often partially shut down as the temperature drops, so you’ll want to use slow moving baits. And you’ll need to be patient.

The lake doesn’t always freeze over completely, so check with the park before you go out onto the lake. And always be careful out on the ice, as thickness and strength can vary greatly throughout the season.

Hiking

Huntington State Park has more to offer RVers outside of the water. Walk around the shore of the reservoir and take in the breathtaking views of the water and nearby mountains. You can also connect to other trails around the park if you want a longer hike through the surrounding areas.

If you come during the winter, you’ll see the mountains blanketed in snow. Or come in spring and watch as the park comes back to life.
