No need to travel too far from home to enjoy the feel of rustic camping in the wilderness! Come on out to McCloud Nature Park on September 22 and spend the weekend with us! Our Park Naturalists will provide opportunities for adventure with family games and a night hike! Or do your own thing while you’re there – splash in Big Walnut Creek, explore the 6.5 miles of trails, take some photographs, listen for the sounds of nocturnal wildlife, tackle the McCloud Prairie Maze, and more! Bring a tent, camping gear, sleeping bags and dinner to cook over the fire, and we’ll provide a campsite (including a firepit), s’mores and breakfast!
