A former YMCA camp, this park offers hiking, picnicking, boating, swimming, fishing and winter activities.

Schooley's Mountain Park is the former site of Camp Washington, a YMCA camp from the 1920s to the 1950s.  Although the park features a large picnic area, a lodge, and other developed recreational facilities, most of the park remains in its natural state. Many hiking trails pass through wild and undeveloped portions of the park that are far removed from the more heavily used areas
