Best Place to Camp Out 

Clinton State Park, Lawrence

The numbers -- 1,500 acres, 460 campsites, and 25 miles of mountain biking trails -- may sound impressive, but they do little justice in describing the natural beauty of the landscape at Clinton State Park. Natural prairie grasses, untouched forests, even a cross-country skiing path make for a unique environment that provides the perfect getaway spot. In fact, half the 460 campsites are what Park Manager Jerry Schecher calls "primitive" -- nothing more than a small clearing and patch of gravel for a fire. "In very few cities can you drive this short of a distance (4 miles) and come to a completely different world," Schecher says.
