Jackson-Washington State Forest Picnic AreaLooking for a pretty spot for a little break? Bring your picnic here and check out another work by Hoosier Hands. Built in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the CCC Shelterhouse is located in the north playground. The Jackson-Washington State Forest encompasses more than 18,000 acres with about 7,000 in Jackson County. In addition to picnicking, the site offers camping, lakes, an archery range, hiking trails ranging from easy to rugged, miles of mountain bike trails, seasonal hunting, and nearly 14 miles of horse trails. The spring wildflowers are abundant, and the fall foliage is spectacular – especially when viewed from nearby Skyline Drive!
