Welcome to Lamping Homestead. This secluded recreation area was once the farmstead of the Lamping family. The Lamping family homesteaded this area in the 1800s. Life must have been very hard for these early pioneers. A small cemetery nearby is a testimony to the hardships of trying to raise a family on these early homesteads.
Today the area offers camping and picnicking, fishing, canoeing, and a scenic hiking trail.
There are two loop trails for hiking, one at 3½ miles and the other at 1½ mile. A 2-acre pond at the site is stocked with bluegill, bass, and catfish.
