Kensington Rune Stone Park is the largest of the Douglas County Parks. The park offers a large variety of landscape for our forest campers to explore; prairie, pond, lake and forest.
In the fall we enjoy walking on the leafy trails, popping corn dogs (cattails) and jumping in the small stream of water found near the park's really neat peninsula and boardwalk.
Winter will bring sledding, boot skating on the pond and snowshoeing on the many trails! We have the luxury of a heated building to take refuge in during the extremely cold days winter has in store for us!
Spruce Hill County Park
Spruce Hill is home to our mushroom forest. The mushroom forest was named by the preschool forest school children and holds a special place in our hearts! You have to go to the mushroom forest to be able to really feel the magic it holds!
Spruce Hill is full of winding trails where enjoy hunting for giant puffball mushrooms, looking for bird pellets, and investigating rotten logs.
A small creek runs through Spruce Hill and the children enjoy playing under the bridge and near the creek edges looking for frogs!
Lake Brophy County Park
Situated on beautiful Lake Brophy, this county park is sure to be a favorite of ours in the forest camps to come!
Hilly trails, lakeside investigations, fishing and prairie discovery are all things to look forward to!
