While there’s still some summer left to enjoy, make the most of every minute. If your kids have spent too much time during this summer break glued to the TV, the iPad, or the computer, make some time for a natural escape. Cedars of Lebanon State Park is the perfect place to unplug and recharge (yourself, not your devices). Whether you’re coming to hike or bike, camp or picnic, you’ll find plenty of family-friendly activities and the most classic of diversions.
Rediscover Nature at Cedars of Lebanon
Part of the Cedars of Lebanon State Forest, the State Park is a 1,139-acre sprawl of wooded land that practically demands visitors to set up camp. Not to disappoint, the park offers 117 campsites with picnic tables, grills, and electric and water hookups, plus 30 tent and pop-up tent sites. A group lodge is also available and can sleep up to 80.
Once you’ve put down stakes – or parked, if that’s your preference – you can start exploring the area’s many natural delights. In the mood for a hike? Pick a path and get moving. There are 8 miles of hiking trails that wind their way through cedar forests and around natural limestone glades. Keep your eyes peeled for a chance to spot local wildlife like fox, deer, squirrels, rabbits, and turkey.
Speaking of wildlife, bird-watching enthusiasts will love the sheer number and variety of species that can be found here, such as indigo bunting, prairie warbler, and yellow-breasted chat. More than 120 bird species have been recorded in the area.
