Pocahontas State Park -- Water, Bikes and Nature

Mileage 326.1
Bike mileage 6.66

We arrived at Pocahontas State Park in Virginia last night. It is a nice space. The pool is amazing with slides and a water park for young children. The campground driveways are paved and great for bikes. There is also a mountain bike trail. Here is our campsite.

On the way, we started listening to Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli yesterday. All three kids were listening intently. Maniac is a talented orphan who is looking for an address to call home. One of my favorite things about camping is getting woken up by nature. This morning the birds were out in full force. And I got up at 6:53.

My camping tip for today is to keep everything in the place you put it for the whole trip, so you can find it. (ie. phone charger in small green duffle bag)
