We adore Audubon. My family has been going there since I was a child. The museum has a small fee, which is well worth the cost if you're even remotely interested in: birds, nature, history, or science. They have several well marked hiking trails, and in the summer they have manual paddle and row boats guests can rent extremely cheap... More

My family and I (two small kids) went for a hike in Audubon State Park this past summer. The lady in the visitor center was very helpful when we were deciding which hike to take-we used a stroller for part of it. It was not at all crowded (just saw a couple other people), and the trails were well-maintained. We... More

This is a great location for a picnic. The trees and lake are beautiful no matter what the season is. It's hilly and scenic. Even if you don't have good hiking gear, you get a great sense of the great outdoors by walking on the paved roadways. Great place to take pictures as well!

I knew this was a CCC park and the campground was consistent with that. We camp in a 26 foot class C so we rarely use the showers, etc. As state parks go there was less than normal space per site. Also there was a lot of road noise. Tight turns, some sites were almost impossible to back in to.... More

This is a great place to hike a few trails, hang out in nature, or fish. You can even rent a paddle boat if you manage to catch someone out there... I don't know if there is a schedule or not, but it seems you can never catch these. It's still a great park either way though. The pet trail... More

This place has awesome trails for running under huge trees which makes it cooler even in the dead of summer. Relatively unused almost like a private park which adds to how nice or really is. Hidden secret that is well worth a visit even if you aren't a runner.

Audubon is great for the hiker who enjoys the challenge of traversing roots and hills and might be planning for a challenge in the Smokies. Audubon is great for the walker who likes to stay on the blacktop and be close to nature. Or the mom with a stroller and kids getting exercise as a family. Audubon museum is great... More

This park is very tranquil with several trails where you can view the wildlife. There is a camp ground on the site with primitive and RV camping. Water and electricity are available at some plots with laundry and bathroom facilities. The museum is great and they offer week long children's camps for a modest fee. The scenic lake offers paddle... More

We found this place by accident several years ago and came back this time on purpose. It is apparently the world’s only museum devoted to this famous American artist and it traces his artistic development as well as the many ups and downs of his career. The museum is located in a french provincial style building originally built in the... More
