Findley State Park Article – March 17, 1956
According to the article, which ran on March 17, 1956 in The Lorain Journal, Findley State Forest had been established in 1936 when Common Pleas Judge Guy B. Findley donated 890 acres of his farmland in Huntington Township to the State of Ohio. It became Findley State Park in 1950.
I have many happy memories of camping at Findley State Park with my family in the late 1960s. Although it was only a short drive away (close enough that we could make a run home if we forgot something), the tall pines made it seem like you were camping in another state.
