Ole Bull State Park consists of 132 acres along the Kettle Creek Valley in Potter County. This area is called the Black Forest because of its once dense tree cover, mountainous terrain and wilderness habitat. The park is named after Ole Bornemann Bull, the famous Norwegian violinist who toured the United States in the 1850’s. Ole Bull attempted to develop a Norwegian settlement at this beautiful location. A monument was erected at the park in 2002.
