About 5 miles from my old house (now my daughters) where we are at Camp Driveway for another 2 weeks is:
The park recently reopened following a tragedy that happened there last June. A fierce thunderstorm with high winds came through this area. Many people were tent camping in the park. A tree fell on one tent killing two young boys ages 2 and 7. So many trees were down in the park rescue vehicles could not get through for a length of time nor campers get out.
On our walk today we saw many piles of tree trunks and some huge uprooted trees still in place.
There are several hiking trails of varying distances throughout the park. Along the trails are informational signage.
The trails are cleared with directional signs at each cross way.
A stand of tall cedar trees:
Looking across the lake to the beach area.
There are 56 tent and RV Sites (no hookups) at a cost of $20.00 night. There is a dump station.
Also meeting pavilions
And 16 cabins with showers, fireplaces, stove, simple furniture and bunk beds.
We do need to get out for a hike more often and take advantage of this gem.
