Ketchumville State Forest encompasses 500 acres. Its rustic and primitive feel makes it ideal for recreational activities such as hunting, snowshoeing, bird watching, and nature viewing. Ketchumville State Forest is undeveloped and has no formally marked trails. Former logging trails, the public forest access road, and old town roads provide informal hiking opportunities. As such, this forest offers unique opportunities to those who wish to explore on their own. No target shooting is allowed on this state forest.
