Ashland Fire Company Nature Cabin
This 32-acre park and Nature Cabin were donated by the Ashland County Fire Company (ACFC) in June 2012. The ACFC is an off-duty civic organization formed in the 1800’s for firemen and volunteers. The ACFC bought the property in 1979 and built the cabin a year later. In the 1980s-90s, many events were held at the cabin, but membership began to decline after 2000. Realizing the property and cabin were falling into disrepair, the ACFC offered the property to the ACPD. The ACFC will continue to have free access to the Cabin for meetings and events.
The hand hewed beams, large windows and beautiful setting in the woods make the cabin a perfect location for a Nature Center. The park also has several trails through beautiful hardwood forest and is dog-friendly.
Location: 1498 State Route 511 South

Reserve the Cabin: A kitchen, wood stove, lots of tables & chairs, porches, grills, picnic tables and a large fire ring makes it perfect for indoor and outdoor events. Community groups may use the cabin for a minimal charge.
Park Quest: Use the handout to follow clues on a “quest” with a “treasure” at the end. Great for families.
