Over the past 20 years, Clearpool has established itself as a top outdoor and wilderness education resource for students of all ages. Our extensive education center and facilities include:
The Dining Hall is a spacious social center featuring vaulted ceilings and picture windows overlooking the forest, lake and trails. In the winter, visitors can warm their hands and feet in front of the hall’s stone fireplace. Meals are served buffet style and include a vegetarian option. A fresh salad bar is offered at lunch and dinner. Meal times:
• Breakfast 8:00 a.m. • Lunch 12:30 p.m. • Dinner 5:30 p.m.
Clearpool Lake is a 9.3-acre natural water body, fully surrounded by forest and wildlife. A 30-foot waterfront offers swimming and boating activities, including Clearpool’s famous raft-building events! The scenic shore is a wonderful place to sit quietly and reflect on the beauty of the Model Forest and wilderness setting. Lifeguards are required for all waterfront activities. Please call about schedule and fees.
The Clearpool trail system consists of more than five miles of mapped trails, open to the public Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Some trails meander along the lake, others climb to the top of the hills with views of the surrounding watersheds. During a walk one might hear red-winged black birds, pileated woodpeckers or chickadees. Trees, shrubs, mosses, rock formations, deer, and more await the quiet forest explorer.
