“We provide vacations for those from far away and those people close,” said Suzie Irwin of the Cook Forest Vacation Bureau. “People who want to do a ‘stay-cation’ can go right here and go to the theater and ride horses and canoe, and all those things are available here without traveling a long way.”

From hiking and biking to swimming and horseback riding, Cook Forest has activities for all ages and interests.
