Historic Epworth Park offers an escape from the fast-paced lifestyle that we know today. Nestled among the grove of majestic oak trees are sixty-one quaint Victorian cottages that invite you to walk in the footsteps of our ancestors, and to experience the happiness of the days gone by.
Enjoy a picnic by the lake. Throw a line in the water from the shore or from a kayak, and try your luck at catching a bluegill, bass, or catfish. Watch as children enjoy the large, fenced playground. Bring the sports equipment for a friendly game of basketball, baseball, or volleyball. Or just walk along the sidewalks winding through the cottages.
The original outdoor chapel/amphitheater is frequently used for services, weddings, and concerts.
Established over 150 years ago as a Methodist Camp Ground, camp meetings were replaced in the 1900’s by the National Chautauqua Movement. Epworth Park celebrates it’s heritage with an annual Chautauqua Homecoming Days festival during the second weekend in July.
