There are 6,624 state park units in the United States, according to the National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD). As outdoor enthusiasts these local gems offer a great opportunity to enjoy the diversity and beauty of our country. Outdoor enthusiasts often mire over the thought of hiking the Appalacian Trail or backpacking the Rockies, but state parks offer spectacular scenery and are an accessible option for weekend get-aways and budget friendly recreation.
Over the next 50 weeks, each week I will be posting an editors choice of the best state park in each state along with a review and pics of the park. I encourage you to like Trailhead Trading Company's Facebook page and follow along our journey of the best state parks in the country, Please give us your opinion and feedback if you have visited any of the featured parks.
