We were surprised to learn that there is a nice state park just 20 miles from our house! I feel like kicking myself for not exploring it sooner. It is fairly small, but has several lakes, camping, a couple hiking trails, and a playground. (And a swim beach, but it was pretty small and rocky.) Not really a vacation destination, but the perfect place to hike around with the kids every so often.
With M3's short legs it took us about an hour to hike the three-quarters of a mile trail. We headed home for lunch, but I think it would great to bring a picnic next time or even try camping since it is close to home.
