This mountain resort is named for the legendary pioneer woman, Jenny Wiley. Taken captive by Indians in 1789, Wiley endured the slaying of her brother and children and escaped after 11 months of captivity. Imagine our heroine eluding her captors as you hike the trails that weave through the wilderness.
Jenny Wiley State Resort Park is sure to offer something for everyone. With both 1,100-acre Dewey Lake and an Olympic-size swimming pool, the park is a water lover's paradise. If swimming, fishing or boating isn't your style, consider taking in a Broadway-style show at the popular Jenny Wiley Theatre.
