Cleveland Nature February 11, 2017
by Conor Battles If You Live In Cleveland, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park
We Clevelanders share a love for the great outdoors that most other cities simply can’t match. If our sprawling park system wasn’t proof enough, there’s also this amazing, one-of-a-kind state park only 25 miles outside the city that shows just how beautiful nature around the Forest City can be.
Punderson State Park boasts 714 beautiful acres to explore.
With this much space and this much nature, you can do virtually anything. From hiking to fishing to playing games on the expertly-maintained manor grounds, there's no shortage of ways to make an afternoon pass. In addition, the park is home to a fantastic golf course if you're feeling competitive.
The scenery is gorgeous.
750 acres means a lot of woods, and the breathtaking vistas in Punderson Park will make any hike worthwhile. There's never been a better place to get lost in the woods.
The park has its own marina and lake access has never been easier.
Whether you're looking to relax with a day on the beach, or you want to take your boat out on a daylong cruise, the 150-acre lake at Punderson Park is the best destination for waterfront fun.
The centerpiece of the park is this sprawling waterfront manor.
You won't find a house this extravagant and amazing anywhere else in Ohio. From the European Gothic accents to the fancy decor of its 31 rentable rooms, the manor has it all.
You'll feel more at home than you ever have before.
The manor at Punderson is as convenient as it is beautiful. Opulent furniture, a full bar, and so much more awaits you within once you've had enough of the outdoors.
There are plenty of options to optimize your stay.
If you find the splendor of the manor a little offputting for your great outdoors experience, you can set up in one of 25 small cabins on the grounds. Other camping options are also available seasonally.
The grounds are open year-round.
While parts of the park are seasonal (you might have trouble getting a boat on the marina when the lake is frozen), the manor takes reservations all year. You can make any special occasion more unforgettable by hosting it in this ornate European-style manor.
Punderson is beautiful and exciting even when the summer ends.
In addition to the manor staying open, Punderson Park is also home to the best winter sports park in northeast Ohio. Whether you're sledding down a steep hill or doing some cross-country skiing, you're in for a legendary winter at Punderson Park.
