Attraction details
Owner description: Wander through a slice of pre-settlement landscape at Pershing State Park. The park includes a boardwalk and hiking trail that winds through a wet prairie near a meandering stream with oxbow sloughs and cutoffs, and into a bottomland forest. The park’s wetlands attract a variety of birds and waterfowl as well as scores of other wildlife species. Locust Creek and four small lakes give anglers a chance to try their skills and a shady campground with electric and basic campsites makes the park an ideal overnight location.

Nice park with electric hookups. Good separation between sites,some shaded,some open. We had a nice secluded site. Decent showers and nice campground hosts.Only $19 a night.

Absolutely loved this small quiet campground. Very private and clean. Loved all the Red Headed Woodpeckers there.

Grill, shelter, playground, woods, walking trails, bridge.
We like to be alone together and Pershing State Park is a fine place to cook out on their grill with playground and fish ponds, walking trails in the woods including a bridge and one boardwalk nature trail out across different wetlands. We'll be back.

Its a great place for dinners, camping, or just nature walking. They have big play grounds near their shelter houses. The kids love it. Its convenient for parents having birthday parties.
