Cost: $7 day use only, if you park in the Picnic area.
What to expect: Fishing at the river, clean sites with fire pit, flushing bathrooms, and a playground for the kids. Plus tons of climbing in and around!
This has become one of our favorite family climbing areas. $7 is totally worth having a playground, shade and toilets for the kids, while you can climb some great routes. And it is only 25 minutes from our front stoop!

Chris and I noticed something about a year ago. The times we got "out and about" together as a family, no matter how hard it was to get out the door, we always returned home closer and more united. And that is what has renewed our passion for the outdoors and in turn for this blog. Our desire is for united families, that interact and enjoy each other. That are experiencing, risking, and acting together. That is the vision for our family. And we believe strongly in it.
Maybe the outdoors don't do it for you. Maybe a weekend camping is like a trip to the dentist, you hate the snow and have a fear of heights. I get that. But find out what makes you tick and do it TOGETHER. It is about so much more than climbing or skiing or camping.
Now a buddy can mean a few things - either another family that wants to bring their kids along too, so you can switch out babysitters for climbers - or - a rare and hard to find single that wants to join you and doesn't mind watching a few kids while you climb too.
So, find a buddy! It is fun for the kids and it is fun for you!
