It is a very pretty park and while it has been really hot around St.Louis this month it was much cooler in the trees.
The park is not large but all the RV sites are spaced very well and no one has the feeling you are on top of each other and the tree cover really helps make it feel secluded
Our fist snake encounter of the season- a small garter snake
Robertsville just completed (this past week) a new hiking trail in the park. It is called Lost Hill and is not on any park map yet. We decided Saturday morning to get up and walk the loop and explore what it looked like.
It is a nicely done trail - easy to follow. It dips down to the Calvey creek bed and then up in the heart of the park
Being the first on trails always has some draw back and double so in the early morning as you are usually the first to eat all the spider webs of the night before
As you can image it is very well marked with some great personal touches from the trail crew
some very cool small items to notice as well
Here is the complete new loop. I mapped it on google earth
Later it was just hanging out and relaxing playing some board games and watching a few movies
After dinner we were joined by a acrobatic squirrel that was eating some dinner upside down.
