Otter Creek Park

Trails & Hiking at Otter Creek Park

There are approximately three miles of trails through Otter Creek Park. They cut through the oak and shagbark hickory forest, which typify the native vegetation of Warren County’s ridges.  Following the trail on the west side of the park, you will quickly discover the secluded campsites that overlook Otter Creek.  These are primitive campsites that can only be reached on foot. No hike at Otter Creek is complete without a visit to the pond.  Although it is small and contains no fish, it attracts a large number of animals.  The waters are crowded with aquatic insects and frogs.  The large tadpole population makes it a great attraction for children, whose access to the water has been made safe by the installation of a boardwalk along the pond’s edge.
