CURLEW LAKE STATE PARK
Curlew Lake State Park is a 123-acre camping park. It borders an air field, is eight miles from a public fossil dig and is also near an active osprey nest that can be viewed from the park. Curlew is one of the most relaxing campgrounds in the state, offering water-and snow-sport activity as well as natural-history and archeological study in the midst of gorgeous surroundings. The park has archaeological significance as a former Indian campground. An active osprey nest is viewable.
An area of the park was a summer camp for some of the regional Indian tribes. In one section, an indigenous pestle was found. In another section, discarded shells of freshwater clams lie close by an ancient fire ring.
