Rare beauty lies waiting in a small southeast area of Ohio known as Noble County. Wolf Run State Park has been preserved as one place where people can enjoy nature and relax. Imagine a gorgeous view of forested hills surrounding a lake of clean clear water. The park is where families come to relax, enjoy the camping experience and find solace away from the noises of everyday life in the city. Wolf Run hosts a variety of enjoyable activities every family member can share together.
The Origin of the area surrounding Wolf Run started over 12,000 years ago when glaciers sculpted much of Ohio. Glacier movement avoided the southeast region but left behind melt waters carving out valleys throughout Noble County. It was prime land where eighteenth century settlers from New England farmed and mined vast resources of iron, stone and oil. The area around the park provided vast resources to the new area inhabitants. An idea was sparked in 1963 and 1,338 acres of land were purchased with the intent to build a park for wildlife and recreation. The new plant life featured deciduous forest mix of oaks, maples, beeches and ash. Wolf Run State Park was dedicated in 1968 and has been enjoyed by families since.
