Meeting location will be in the main day use parking lot. Both races will start and finish right next to this parking lot. Refreshments will be available after the race, and awards will be presented to top finishers in each age division, and overall finishers.

September 20 Wonderful Campground by darrene
We took our kids there camping for the first time after they open back up. Love the location of the campground. The staff was very friendly. The campground was spotless along with the bathrooms. We will be coming back more now. Highly recommend a trip to this state park.
