Like many of our awesome state parks, we will be incorporating a harvest theme for this campout. Campers are encouraged to use fall decorations at their sites, children are encouraged to bring and wear their costumes for a parade, and campers are encouraged to bring treats for a trick-or-treat event (prepackaged only; nothing homemade, please). Crafts will have an autumn theme. S’mores kits, crafts, a guided hike and a pancake breakfast will be provided for every registered guest.

Camp when you can! Here are some local campsites to check out when you plan your own evening under the stars.
