Activities in Linn County

Visitors to Linn County parks enjoy many aspects of outdoor recreation!  From primitive camping to modern cabins; trails for people and pets (including horses); a modern shooting range, water activities ranging from canoe floats to fishing access, to a multi-cache Geocache program.  Indoor and outdoor educational programs take place at the nature center, known as the Wickiup Hill Learning Center.

Facilities in Linn County

Lodges, shelters, and camping cabins are available to rent by visiting the facilities tab. Our family camping sites in our park campgrounds are "first-come, first-serve," but Wanatee Park does offer 24 reservable sites in A-Loop.
