The Awesome Moraine State Park

Moraine State Park is 16,725 acres, with 1,750 square feet of beach, 71 miles of trails and 42 miles of shoreline.  What can you do with all of that space?  Hike 38 miles.  Ride your horse for 20 miles.  Bike seven miles.  Mountain bike for six miles.  Snowmobile for 26 miles.  Have a picnic at one of the park’s 705 picnic tables.  Keep your boat on the lake  with 542 marina slips and 395 mooring spaces. 

Each year, over two-million people visit Moraine State Park, making it Butler County’s top attraction. The newest addition to the Park is Preston’s Pearl, a tour boat that offers a variety of cruises on Lake Arthur. Cruises are offered from Memorial Day Weekend through October, and more information can be found at Moraine Preservation Fund. Another unique way to enjoy the lake is through stand up paddleboarding lessons and guided eco tours with SurfSUP Adventures

The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset, unless otherwise posted. Park information, launch permits, cabin information and assistance can be obtained at the park office near the entrance to the South Shore. The office is open year-round, Monday through Friday, 8 AM-4 PM, and weekends during the summer.
