Recreation is one of the Goodman-Dunbar area's featured attractions. Lake Hilbert offers a variety of opportunities for boating, camping, fishing, etc., and Goodman Park, named for "R.B." himself, is a short drive from downtown Goodman. It offers a walking bridge over Strong Falls, huge red pines, two lodges for day use rental, hiking-skiing trail, camping, picnicking and lovely scenery.
Large tracts of State Forest land, high quality trout streams, and crystal-clear lakes offer an abundance of recreational opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Four of the county's finest trout streams flow through the forests of the Goodman-Dunbar area: the Peme Bon Won, also known locally as the Pemenee, the K.C. Creek, and the north and south branches of the Pike River. The Pike River has been declared a Wild River by the Federal Government, which means it carries certain restrictions to keep the river and its tributaries clean and free flowing. Snowmobilers and ATV enthusiasts will revel in the glory of freshly groomed trails, which are maintained year-round.
