"Daddy when can we go camping again?"
In 2013, inspired by a story of a mom trying to get outside every weekend, Brian and Lori Miller, along with their two children, Leah and Collin, set out on their quest to visit all 52 (now 55!) state parks. For the Millers, the geographic and financial accessibility of Vermont State Parks make the parks the perfect fit to set aside family time outdoors, unplug, and have fun. The Millers just visited #37! Here is an update from their latest adventure in Quechee State Park.
This is what our kids asked us as the weather started getting warmer and we worked on breaking the camper out of hibernation. Hallelujah! Our kids want to go camping! We’ve done something right! After what seemed like an extra long winter hiatus, our quest to reach all 55 Vermont state parks as a family began again Memorial Day weekend. Quechee State Park became #37 on our steadily growing checklist. It’s been a while since we’ve written about our state park quest because I don’t recall mentioning the fact that we graduated to a pop-up camper. And just when life and camping with kids was getting easier, we got a puppy. I guess we needed to balance out the relative “ease” of having a pop-up with the additional challenge of camping with kids and a dog! Read more here.
We love seeing photos and hearing stories from
people who love Vermont State Parks.
