“on oasis on the plains”
Boiling Springs State Park, an oasis on the plains, captures some of the finest elements of nature. The park is one of seven original state parks built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps and was named after a natural "boiling" spring that still flows. The park's namesake attraction is showcased in a natural wooden shelter and interpretive center below the park office. When visiting for the day, guests can stroll around the structure and learn more about the history of Boiling Springs State Park while taking in the nearby beauty, or turn your visit into an extended stay and spend the night in one of the park's four cabins. Wildlife is one of the many awe-inspiring features of the 820-acre park. Various species of animals dominate the area including whitetail deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, beavers, badgers, rabbits, skunks and opossums. Four cabins, 40 RV sites and 12 tent campsites are available, as well as group camping. All campsites are available on a first come, first serve basis. Pets are allowed in all the cabins for a small fee. More than 150 picnic tables and grills are located throughout the park. Guests can access one of three pavilions, furnished with electrical outlets, a cookout grill and water. Visitors can also enjoy swimming in the pool, hiking the trails and fishing in the 7-acre spring-fed Shaul Lake. Your family will enjoy the quiet beauty of Boiling Springs State Park, where nature inspires vacation.
The Boiling Spring was very interesting to see. There is lots of history and info shared throughout the park
Just know that the address listed takes you to the center of town and not the park. At least that is what happens if you use Google maps. Follow the signs. The bubbling brook is behind the rangers office. It was interesting and educational.
