Greenwood Creek State Park

Olympic Byway, County Rt. 3, near Harrisville in Lewis County

A multi-purpose park with picnic area, nature trail, stream fishing, waterfalls, two camp sites, and natural spring water, on Route 3 southwest of Fine.

There are two camping sites along the road before you enter the parking lot. Small scenic picnic area has fireplaces, picnic tables, and a quarter-mile nature trail leading to an observation platform overlooking a wetland habitat and Greenwood Creek. For the ambitious brook trout angler, this section of the creek offers an evening meal at the picnic area. Enjoy the forest on a leisurely walk, on a 1.8 mile nature loop constructed in 1981, and winds along the creek, past waterfalls, and through hardwood and softwood forests. A bubbling encased spring, restored in 1982, provides a respite for the thirsty hiker along the trail.
