Camping & Hiking at Cook Forest State Park

From Sunday – Tuesday we went camping at Cook Forest State Park.  It was our 3rd time camping here. DSC_0153 (2)

The view of The Endless Mountains and Autumn foliage on the way to Cook forest is stunning.

We enjoy staying in the cabins built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s.  They were built out of American chestnut trees that died of blight.  They are on the National Register of Historical Places.

    So beautiful! I’d love a week in that cabin. Truth be told, that would come close to my image of a dream home — even though I know that’s never going to happen! The orange tree is magnificent. There’s certainly nothing like that around here.

  2. Gorgeous. I love the trail photos through the woods and that shot of the deer and the creek behind your cabin. Everything is so beautiful and peaceful out there.
