What's the difference between a park and a recreation area?
The difference between a park and a recreation area deals with the activities that can be enjoyed in that area. A park allows visitors the opportunity for camping, hiking, picnicking, and fishing using modern developments such as established campsites with electricity and water, rest rooms, and shelter houses. Hunting is not permitted in our parks and these areas may be closed to visitors at times. Recreation areas may not permit overnight camping, may not have rest rooms, and may not have access to water. Hunting and fishing are permitted during the appropriate seasons and recreation areas are open year-round.
