  • Overview

    The Atsion Recreation Area is part of Wharton State Forest. Swimming at Atsion Lake is only permitted when lifeguards are on duty from 10 am to 6 pm.


    Historic Batsto Village is also located within Wharton State Forest, a former bog iron and glassmaking industrial center from 1766 to 1867 that currently reflects the agricultural and commercial enterprises that existed here during the late 19th century. At the village you will find a visitor center, exhibit gallery, museum shop and interpretive center.


    Throughout the forest are rivers and streams for canoeing, hiking trails (including a major section of the Batona Trail), miles of unpaved roads for mountain biking, horseback riding plus numerous lakes, ponds and fields ideal for wildlife observation.


    Tent camping in family, primative and wilderness sites is available in designated areas only throughout Wharton State Forest.


    Fees: Entrance fees are only charged from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.
