New Germany State Park
New Germany State Park’s visitors frequently call it a “best kept secret.” This mountain getaway is seated between the 2,900 ft. Big Savage Mountain and the eastern Continental Divide along Meadow Mountain. Named by early settlers due to its resemblance to their homeland, New Germany has diverse forests with ten miles of multi-use trails and a small lake suitable for fishing, swimming, and non-motorized boating. This park is ideal for families and individuals looking to “unplug” from the busy pace of life in cities and suburbs. Contained within Savage River State Forrest, this area is not short on history. the nature center can help you with that and much more. there you can find information on the park, safe camping habits, organized nature hikes, and campfires. these campfires feature special guests to talk about tons of different topics from nature to society. So maybe there is a day trip in your future to New Germany State Park.
