Hey Eve, there are a ton of state parks around the state that can be fairly productive, depending on your quarry. Recently however, prime target species – hen/chicken of the woods, lions mane, porcini – have been awfully tough to come by, with minimal finds since mid Sept. The hens I am finding now are several weeks past their prime, but I am optimistic a second round will pop with the recent rain and upcoming forecasts. I would recommend targeting forests with large, mature white oak trees in stream/creek areas that benefit from the higher natural moisture. I’ll be going out this weekend and will report back with any notable finds. Good luck out there!
