Getting Outdoors

Once you've set up camp in Douthat State Park, you'll no doubt be itching to immerse yourself in the park's beautiful natural surrounds. The easiest way to do that is to set out and explore as much of the 43-mile trail network as you can handle.

If you're looking for something easy, the 0.28-mile Buck Lick Trail near Douthat Lake offers a quick introduction to the park's wooded terrain. For those hikers seeking something a little more strenuous, the three-mile trail to Blue Suck Falls will not only help you work up a sweat but also lead you to a beautiful and secluded waterfall.

Once you've worked up a sweat exploring on foot, you might want to take a swim to cool off. The good news is that Douthat State Park has a lovely sandy swimming beach on Douthat Lake where you can do exactly that. Guarded beach swimming is available here from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, but please note that a fee applies.

Another popular pastime for campers in Douthat State Park is fishing. Douthat Lake covers some 50 acres and its waters are stocked twice a week with rainbow, brown, and brook trout during peak periods. Largemouth bass, sunfish, and several other species can also be caught, and there are fishing piers at the lake's northwestern and southeastern ends. Boat rentals are also available, and there's a boat ramp located near the Lakeside Campground.
