Olive Creek State Recreation Area


Park Snapshot


Olive Creek State Recreation area has 612 acres of land and water available to outdoor recreation enthusiasts. Although small, the 175-acre lake supports a variety of fish from largemouth bass to bluegill to two kinds of catfish, making for a diversity of fishing excitement. Boaters are restricted to 5 mph.


This area offers shady primitive tent camping, fishing and picnicking.

Habitat management on the 437 acres of land provides hunters with the possibility of bagging upland game as well as waterfowl and deer. As on all the Salt Valley lakes, only steel shot may be used for waterfowl hunting. Camping and picnic facilities are also available.
