Highland Lakes State Park Wikipedia
Highland Lakes State Park is a largely undeveloped park, and primarily offers opportunities for passive recreation including hiking, fishing, horseback riding and model airplane flying. Although a series of informal trails and woodland roads exist within the park, no trails are officially maintained and maps of the network are not available.
The central core of the park was the site of the Newburg YMCA's all boys residence camp known as Camp Orange. The camp's last season was in 1973, after which all of the buildings were removed. A remnant of the olympic size swimming pool built in 1964 remains, as well as the stone foundation of the dining hall.
