Nolte State Park is a 117-acre day-use park with 7,174 feet of freshwater shoreline on Deep Lake in the Green River Gorge. Covered with forests and blessed with water, the land was a resort for many years before it was donated to State Parks. This summer day-use park is popular for its water activities and grassy lawns on the shore of a small lake. A 1-mile hiking path winds around the water.
The park provides two kitchen shelters without electricity, plus one sheltered and 50 unsheltered picnic tables. Kitchen shelters are reservable for groups of up to 50 persons. Fees vary, based on size of the group. Picnic shelter reservations may be made by visiting online or calling (888) CAMPOUT or (888) 226-7688.
