Oakwood Lakes State Park NTDGC

Oakwood Lakes State Park Nature Trail Disc Golf Course map

Oakwood Lakes State Park Nature Trail Disc Golf Course is a 0.5 mile (one way) 9-hole course on rolling hills. If you don’t have a frisbee, it’s not a problem. The park entrance booth has discs available to check out free of charge on a first-come basis.

Nestled among eight connecting glacial lakes, this park provides a never-ending variety of activities throughout the year, from hiking and swimming, to ice fishing and cross-country skiing. Shaded campgrounds and picnic areas complement the park's excellent swimming and boating facilities.

The park was once used as a summer camp and an annual gathering spot for American Indians. Later, Samuel Mortimer arrived in 1869 and built the log cabin that still stands at the park. The visitor center showcases an archeology display of items found in the area.

Trail length:
0.50 miles
Whether in good shots or in actual birds, it's always good to see as many "Birdies" as possible during your round of disc golf. The "Birdies" scorecard/field-guide was designed to help players identify some of the more common birds found here. How many "Birdies" will you see during your round today?

Oakwood Lakes Tree Scorecard

Trail length:
0.50 miles
When disc golfers hit a tree with their disc and get a favorable bounce, they call that “Tree Love.” Use the pictures on this scorecard to identify a few of the trees found here. Every time you hit a tree with your frisbee, take a second to try to identify it. Look at its bark, leaf shape and other identifying features. Soon, identifying trees will be as easy as making a five foot putt.
