The Chippewa Moraine State Recreation Area was established as a state recreation area in a master plan completed in 1990. This 3,500-acre property aims to preserve and interpret unique geographic land forms from the last ice age and provides a variety of recreation opportunities.
This area also hosts the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Authorized by the US Congress in 1980, this trail is one of eleven National Scenic Trails in the US. As a national and state scenic trail, the 1,000-mile Ice Age Trail will eventually connect Interstate State Park and Potawatomi State Park.
