Ruth Lake is a recreational day-use area popular with local residents for fishing and swimming. A grassy area overlooks a small beach. The remainder of the park is undeveloped forest above the lake. This open forest of fir and pine shades large boulders or "erratics," reminders of the great ice sheets of 10,000 years ago.
Special Features: There are erratics and rock outcrops from glacial action that can be viewed in the park.
