Jericho Mountain State Park
Just a few miles northwest of downtown Berlin you will find one of the newest additions to the state park system. Jericho Mountain State Park provides opportunities for miles of trail riding for ATV, UTV, trail bike, and snowmobile enthusiasts alike. Open to the public, but still in development, the park will continue to have more miles added to the trail network over the next several years.
Throughout the park, visitors are treated to a number of scenic outlooks. Park guests can also enjoy swimming, fishing, canoeing, picnicking and boat rentals at Jericho Lake. Further development plans for the park include expansion of the ride-in/ride-out campground, several remote tent sites, group picnic pavilions, administrative OHRV Rules for Highway Use
offices, and improved beach facilities. Home to the ever popular, Jericho ATV Festival.
