  • 1 of my favorite parks has a vast expansion of river that is easily accessible to fish. Good trails to hike, has a park for little kids to play, a nice camp ground with a shower if needed would recommend for a day trip or a weekend stay. But you'll want to call ahead of time to see if camp sites are available because spots fill fast in the summer months.
  • Another beautiful spot well on summer vacation or if we're just hanging out. Very nice bar close by with cold drinks and hot dinners.
