Jackson F. Kimball State Park

J.F. Kimball State Park is situated in a pristine forest setting at the headwaters of the Wood River. The river emerges as bubbling springs from a rocky mountainside into a beautiful, large, clear-blue lagoon. The park features 10 primitive campsites, canoe access to the Wood River and trails for viewing the scenery and wildlife.

The headwater springs of the Wood River at J.F. Kimball State Park are unique in their size and dramatic emergence into the clear-blue lagoon at this site. The primitive campground is reminiscent of an early recreation era best suited to simple tent camping. A modest fee is charged for camping, while there is no charge for day-use areas. Visitors should bring their own water; vault toilets are provided. The site is a favorite launching spot for conoeists navigating down the Wood River; moderate skill is required.
