Roaring River State Park
We went camping Friday and Saturday. We stayed at Roaring River State Park in Missouri. It was BEAUTIFUL there.
We had fun, but it was hot and we got a little cranky, lol....It was REALLY, REALLY hot. We spent most of our time in the freezing cold river because it was SO damn hot outside.
Tyler, Emily, and Halsey went with us. Glad we had good company. The kids LOVED playing in the water. The boys fished a couple times, but didn't catch anything. Tyler and Tyler caught the boys a bunch of sculpins and a couple crawdads. The boys caught minnows and found lots of nasty things.
A bat stayed the night on Tyler and Emily's tent! Creepy little sucker!
The campsite was perfect. #157. It was shady and big and even had some grass!
Oh and we went to the hatchery and got to see a TON of fish! The boys threw food out to them and we all watched them jump up and get it. There were some huge fish. We went to the cave and saw the little water tornado (from a drain) that the kids thought was awesome.
I'm so happy we went and will definitely do it again, when the weather is nicer!
