This state park is situated inside the Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region, and is set in a gorgeous forest. It has five miles of stream and lake shoreline, including Lake Britton, and amazing hikes.
There is also the gorgeous 129 foot Burney Falls waterfall that alone is worth the trip. The campground is also very nice, with a beach, boat ramp, camp store and more.
Yellowstone holds the planet’s most diverse and intact collection of geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles (the small openings where hot sulfurous gases are coming out).
The more than 300 geysers here make up two-thirds of all those found on earth.
Combine this with more than 10,000 thermal features comprised of brilliantly colored hot springs, bubbling mud pots, and steaming fumaroles, and you have a place like no other.
Yellowstone’s vast collection of thermal features provides a constant reminder of the park’s recent volcanic past.

The Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park consists of over 60,000 acres and contains the largest tract of old-growth hardwood forests west of the Adirondacks.
The State Park is home to black bears, deer, wolves, river otters, and even moose, as well as rare woodland plants that depend on the old-growth forest habitat that abounds here.
Visiting the virgin forests, free-fowing rivers and undisturbed beaches of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness is like taking a step back in time. There are great hiking and mountain bike trails here and hundreds of waterfalls, secluded lakes, wild rivers, and streams.

The Wilderness Visitor Center should be your first stop in the Porkies. It’s located along the South Boundary Road, three miles west of Silver City on M-107.
Here, you can:

register for backpacking
get directions to scenic sites
check wildlife sightings
note the interpretive activities and guided hikes schedule (see below!)
The center has an exhibit hall featuring natural communities of the mountains and native wildlife species including fisher, goshawk, gray wolf, porcupine, peregrine falcon, bear, and beaver. The exhibit hall also displays the history of the Porcupine Mountains from prehistoric copper miners to the lumber camps of the early 1900s.
Just outside the Visitor Center is an easy and enjoyable, self-guided nature trail. This mile-long loop takes about 45 minutes and highlights the wildlife and other natural features of the northwoods.
The Visitor Center is open from mid-May through mid-October.

Some say this is the most beautiful state park in Utah. Desert landscape with breath-taking canyons and cliffs. Amazing sunsets and sunrises. Dogs are permitted on the trails. The star-filled dark skies are breathtaking. We highly recommend.
What many say is the most beautiful state park in all of the United States. See why what we have to say here: https://rvlifestyle.com/dead-horse-point-and-goblin-valley/
Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water, and wind creating a visual masterpiece.
Great dispersed camping in the Ozark National Forest. Campsites are secluded from each other and have fire rings. Great hiking trails around the bluff with great valley views. Vault toilets at each end of the campground.
