The scenic Nelson Ledges Quarry Park is a great place to camp, swim, hike, sunbathe, attend music festivals, or just plain hang out. The park is a beautiful landscape made up of 250 acres of forest, meadows, streams, rock ledges, fishing lakes, and of course the quarry itself. There are also more than 400 campsites, some deep in the woods, some along the Quarry, and others in secluded meadows. Nelson Ledges is therefore an ideal venue for weekend-long music festivals as well.

The park is a unique and special place that is cherished by many. Over the last 50 years, thousands have claimed that their greatest memories were made at the Quarry. Due to their interactions with friends and the landscape as a whole, the park leads to experiences that can be compared with no other. It’s a place where friends come together, friends are made, people fall in love, and the best times are had.
