The mission of the Department of Recreation, Forestry and Parks is to manage the County Reforestation parcels for a sustainable future while providing recreational and community access. We work with the local ATV Clubs to manage, promote, and maintain the OHV Trails in Lewis County. We strive to work with the community, local municipalities as well as other Counties to promote and attain access to the OHV (Off Highway Vehicle) Trail System. In addition, aid is provided to the local Snowmobile Clubs with administration of the NYS OPRHP Snowmobile Grant.
