BATTLE MOUNTAIN STATE PARK
BATTLE MOUNTAIN STATE PARK
Battle Mountain Forest State Scenic Corridor -- located on U.S. 395 nine miles north of Ukiah -- was purchased to protect the forest of ponderosa pine, larch, Douglas fir and spruce. It provides prime habitat for all kinds of wildlife. The name commemorates one of the last battles between native Americans and settlers in eastern Oregon. This confrontation took place near the park.

The park also served as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, whose members constructed the water system, installed picnic tables and built the large granite stone fireplace still available for use in the park. The park offers a convenient place to gather for summer visitors. Spring brings with it the beauty of abundant wildflowers and wildlife. Many people enjoy the many species of birds in the park throughout the spring and summer.

Whether you are traveling the highway and need a place to stretch your legs, or are looking for a place to have a family reunion or get together for a large group, be sure and consider Battle Mountain.

June 10 Well-Kept Park by Barbara Halliday
We were delighted to find this park in the middle of a wonderful Blue Mountain forest. The variety of trees in the park was amazing--especially the Larch.
