J. F. Kimball State Park is a pristine site located at the headwaters of the Wood River. This stream flows from the pine forest into open meadow land laced with picturesque quaking aspen surrounded by the southern Cascade Mountains. Wood River offers fine fishing that can be accessed from the park by canoe. Kimball Park offers primitive camping next to a spring-fed lagoon at the beginning of this waterway.

A walking trail connects the campground to the site where the clear spring bubbles from a rocky hillside. The park is a secluded place where you can contemplate the moment while relaxing in the whispering lodgepole pines.
