4. Last trip before the big one!

Oregon’s newest state park L.L. Stub Stewart State Park opened in Buxton in 2007.  This park is the perfect park for biking, hiking and horse back riding.  I had to book this popular state park 9 months in advance to secure one of two pull through sites in the campground, but they still had a few other RV sites and tent sites available for the weekend.  It is only 34 miles from Portland and has over 1800 acres to enjoy.  On Hilltop Day Use Area, you can see a beautiful view of the Coast Range below.  It also has 6 miles of bike trails and while we were there a huge group of bikers were practicing for a 100 mile race that they will participate in at Lake Tahoe.

We camped over the Memorial Day weekend and the park was pretty much full.   Kelly made friends with a really nice man who helped him with the satellite.  People who camp are usually just the friendliest people you could meet!

Plan a trip to see this impressive State Park, even if you just go for the day!

We hiked 5 miles that morning before it got to hot.

This s the life for Kelly!   Hiking, biking and the outdoors!

Our campsite was big and the campground was filling with activity with lots of children riding bikes going to park programs like “The Beaver”.  The guest speaker dressed up as a Beaver and even had a tail.  The kids seemed to love it.
