  • Curtisville Lake Campground

    MCPARC offers primitive and RV camping at the 700-acre Curtisville Lake. Newly built campgrounds are adjacent to a 70-acre lake with new bathroom facilities, playground and picnic shelter. Over 4 miles of walking and biking trails surround the lake that is approximately a 15 minute drive from downtown Mannington.

  • Geocaching

    Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a GPS unit.  Within the many parks and trails we manage you can find hidden treasure. Not the gold and silver that wayward pirates might have lost but something just as fun to find. Geocaching is a fun and exciting, family friendly activity that you can participate in year-round.
