For the 6th year in a row, our family volunteered at the Baby Steps Memorial Run 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run, which my son and daughter-in-law and another couple started after losing children. (Funds raised go to the Amelia Center, a counseling center for parents who have lost children, children who have lost parent or siblings, etc.) As usual,... More

Tannehill Park is a nice break to get away. There are civil war iron furnaces and a museum. There's also trails to hike or bike, a creek to fish, campgrounds, a small train on weekends that children love, trade days once a month and craft cabins open on weekends. We love to take our grandchildren for a picnic, a hike... More

We camped with our travel trailer for one night and ended up staying 6. We had been on a trip out west and were tired of KOA and Good Sam disappointments so decided to give this a try. We paid 22/night after a 15% discount. We easily found a shady spot next to the creek. Creek sites were plentiful but... More

If you're planning to visit be sure to check the Trade Days schedule, the craft cabin schedule, as well as cabin and camp site availability. Expect to pay $90 a night for cabins, and variable rates depending on... More

This park has a fee of $3 per person to get in, they have a train that drops people off from one side of the park to the other if you are not the walking type. There is tons of trails and there is even sidewalks to walk that go up hill from one of the park to the other.... More
