Ontario offers opportunities for picnicking, fishing, boating, swimming and wildlife viewing.
Green grass, clean grounds, and modern restrooms greet visitors stopping to boat, fish, swim or picnic for the day. Majestic cottonwood trees, sumac and fragrant junipers offer large splashes of shade to cool the hot summer days and provide startling color in the autumn.
Whether you are a serious naturalist or a casual visitor, Ontario is a great place to enjoy bird-watching and other wildlife. Blue heron, Canada geese, river otter, and muskrat are found in the reeds and grass along the shores of the Snake River. Deer feed on a nearby island and are sometimes visible in the early morning mist. Bring your binoculars, picnic basket, boat or fishing pole. Ontario State Recreation Site can be a day away from it all.
Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park.
