Hiking is one of the most popular attractions at Wharton State Forest. Dozens of trails wind through the forest, with terrains of all kinds for hikers of differing abilities, while unpaved roads provide exciting challenges for off-road cyclists.

Visitors to Wharton State Forest can get an education in nature as they pass through natural wetlands, bogs and pine barrens. In the warmer months, visitors can cool off in ponds, lakes and rivers, or try their hands (and feet!) at a boat, canoe or kayak trip. Animal lovers will want to keep their eyes peeled, as the park is home to countless wildlife, including rare frogs and turtles, as well as eagles, hawks and ospreys.
The forest also offers some history lessons. Visitors can take a self-guided tour through the Batso Village, a collection of several-dozen structures built in the 1700s, when they were used for iron- and glassmaking. A trip through Harrisville is also like a walk back in time, as visitors can poke around the ghost town that dates to the 1800s. Also dating to the 1800s, the Atsion Mansion has been expertly restored to provide a glimpse back to a different time.
With so much to see and do, many visitors take advantage of the cabin and tent camping for multi-day adventures. However, residents at Holly Court’s apartments for rent near Wharton State Forest can be back home from a long day of outdoor adventures in no time.
