Celebrate Turtle River State Park and National Trails Day with some Fish’n’Fun, Saturday, June 14.
Start the day at the Kid’s Fishing Derby from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the CCC Memorial Shelter. All of the necessary equipment will be provided and door prizes will be awarded at various times during the fishing derby.
Stop in at the geocaching table to learn more about the art of hiding and finding caches, ask questions about how to use your GPS unit or smartphone for geocaching, and try your luck finding a cache within the park. There will be a small number of GPS units available to borrow. At 11:00 a.m., meet an interpretive naturalist in the CCC Memorial Shelter parking lot for a guided hike.
Grab a scavenger hunt clue sheet to explore a hidden nook or two within the park. Completed scavenger hunt sheets can be entered into a drawing for National Trails Day prizes. Prizes will be drawn at 2:00 p.m. after The Wildlife Society’s presentation.
Skip’s Gourmet Grub will be on site in the CCC Memorial Shelter parking lot from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for visitors to purchase lunch, drinks, or ice cream. After lunch, meander up to the amphitheater in the campground for a presentation by North Dakota State University’s chapter of The Wildlife Society at 1:00 p.m.
June 14 is our Visitor Appreciation Day, the daily vehicle fee will be waived for vehicles entering for the day.
