Findley State Park's main feature is its 93-acre lake, and fishing and boating are popular here. (Electric motors only; canoes, kayaks and rowboats can be rented at the marina). More fun can be had in the more than 800 acres that surround the lake, however, and make an overnight (or several night) stay here worthwhile. 
Camping at Findley State Park
The well-maintained campground on the lake offers a variety of sites, including nearly 30 for walk-ins (read: no reservations required) plus several that are ADA accessible. If your party isn't quite up for tent camping, call the office or view online reservations to find out if one of the park's camper-cabins is available. 
Mountain Biking and More
Thorn Trail is an 8-mile long single track mountain bike trail offering a long stretch of fairly flat terrain, but don't underestimate it.  A few technical climbs, rooty sections and other fun before you're done make up for the relative ease in the middle. In its entirety the trail is rightly recommended for intermediate riders. 
The park also features a disc golf course and more than 7 miles of hiking trails, including a portion of the Buckeye Trail.
