3 August 2013 Caching State Parks
We enjoyed a nice meal and a quiet evening in London,Ohio before continuing our journey. Today's plan was to visit Madison Lake, Deercreek, and A.W. Marion State Parks with some other local caches mixed in. We've been tying to visit new state parks so we can qualify for the Ohio State Park Challenge. Some of the visits have been happy exploration of a new park. Most of them have fallen in the area of 'we've been there and won't be going back.' Madison Lake and Deercreek are definately one visit parks. Madison Lake Park was smaller than most of the county parks in Northeast Ohio. The trail needed a big CITO. Deercreek State Park looked like what would be a hunting and fishing wildlife area anywhere else in the state. I understand that Columbus is the state capital and those nearest the capital get the most pork, but these places stretch the limits of the term state park.
