Rifle River Recreation Area, a wilderness located within the AuSable State Forest, provides a variety of recreational opportunities. Formerly a private hunting and fishing retreat owned by the late H.M. Jewett, and then used as a field laboratory for fish and game research, the area now known as the Rifle River Recreation Area became a state park in 1963.

The recreation area includes 7 lakes, 3 ponds and 7 miles of trout streams serving as the headwaters of the Rifle River. The park provides year-round recreational opportunities, including camping, picnicking, swimming, hiking, biking, paddling, fishing and more. More than 4,100 acres are open to hunting.
