Many Outdoor Activities
Like to fish or hunt?
Acres and acres of forests, lakes and rivers are inhabited by many species of wild game and fish. If your route to rest and relaxation is competitive sports, you’ll find our civic center offers four lighted tennis courts, an indoor tennis court, baseball and softball fields, and an outdoor volleyball court.
A trip to the $2.1 million “Gilley Pool” is like going to a theme park, and the “Jungle Jym” playground next door offers hours of fun for the young ones. The Chamber sponsors the state’s largest professional bicycle race while the city sponsors a yearly triathlon and 1/2 marathon.
With golfing, hiking and “World Class” kayaking, Warren County is a haven for the outdoor lovers.
Warren County is also home to Cumberland Caverns, the second largest cave system east of the Mississippi River.
Rock Island State Park (in northeast Warren County) is situated on the head waters of Center Hill Lake and offers all types of water sports, hiking, tennis, camping and some of the best Muskie fishing in the state.
