Favorite State Parks?

Hi everyone,

Thanks for all of the kind comments about my family's new camping blog. I just wrote a review of our stay at Camden Hills State Park in Maine at Lively Little Campers and was wondering what some of your favorite state parks are?

I am looking for some recommendations for future outings. We loved Camden Hills and it was so much cheaper than staying at a private campground. About 40 bucks a night.

Would love some state park recommendations from anywhere in the country!

Absolutely. We do plan on taking the camper cross-country one day soon.

Elk Neck State Park in MD is a great park with 3 point hook up and less that $40 a night . It's along the Bay and the views from Turkey point Light house a beautiful.We are heading back in September. Make reservations early and they also have large and small cabins to rent. Lots to do in the area.

Great thread! We are in Indiana and have only been out once. Looking forward to learning of other nice state parks (and visiting a few).

Hunting Island State Park is great but unless you are going midwinter better make you're reservations well in advance. We love it. FD Roosevelt State Park north of Columbus GA is another of our favorites, just outside of Callaway Gardens. Stephen Foster CC State Park in White Springs FL is on our A list as well......

i see you are from new jersey. we are in MA. would like to stay in maine maybe next year. so im going to heck out the review you gave. we have been going around.. but we really like brialee, in ashford ct. and the plus is.. every spot regardless of hookups- during mid-week ( sund- thurs) is just 20$. and they dont charge for extra kids!! love it , we are going there again tomorrow and probably for halloween. they have great family activities, and its just really comfortable there!

I'm in Indiana as well. I would recommend Brown County and Turkey Run. Brown County has a lot of hills and great views. Several hiking trails and a couple of lakes too. Turkey Run has a creek running through it that you can canoe on. There are also several hiking trails through some beautiful canyons. The great thing is that most Indiana parks are under $20 during the week for water and electric!
