Fort Defiance State Park

3642 174th Street

Fort Defiance State Park's 191 acres of rugged woodland provide a beautiful contrast to the gently rolling surrounding farmlands. The park's trails, picnic areas and scenic overlooks provide a great place to relax. Its lush cover of vegetation includes hawthorn, plum, locust and many species of the state tree - the oak. In the spring, the slopes are speckled with trillium, bloodroot, hepatica and violets. A small prairie with native grasses and flowers, including the endangered prairie bush clover, thrives on a secluded knoll.

Trails and the lodge are nice here, however the camp site needs modernization's made as there are no water running bathrooms, just an outhouse which has no electricity either so be sure you have a flashlight at night. Makes for a nice quiet drive when needing to just relax.
