Activities and Amenities
Important notice: The OHRV trail network in much of Coos County will not be open for the Memorial Day Weekend. The closure includes trails into and around Lakes Francis and Coleman State Parks. The wet and cooler than average spring weather has delayed snow melt in several areas and trails and roads are too wet to allow use.

Hunters and anglers enjoy this park as a base for their respective activities. With added ATV camping sites, riders are able to leave their campsite and head right out on the trails. Trails from Lake Francis State Park connect with the 1000 mile of trailsfor OHRV riding in Coos County.
