We all have State Parks ready to serve us here in the 432. The cool thing about a State Park is that they are very affordable and NATURE is brought to life to whoever visits. Visiting a State Park is good for the soul is what I like to say. It's just a great way to GET OUT and venture into our beautiful land here in the United Sates. Of course, great to visit the lakes, hiking trails, desert, animals AND camping that we love to do!

I personally love to take the RV to a State Park and enjoy nature and more. The other cool thing about visiting a state park is that usually it's a lot cheaper to visit than an amusement park or a hotel if you stay the night over at a State Park.
