Description

Someone ought to petition that De Soto State Park to become its own township—this place has everything. Everything. Can’t decide whether you want to stay at a primitive campsite, fancy-pants campsite, backpackers campsite, log cabin, lodge, motel room, or chalet? The variety of lodging is impressive, but its nothing compared to the breathtaking mountain lookouts, rushing waterfalls, and bursts of wildflowers. The 3,500-acre campground also has an olympic-sized swimming pool, restaurant and museum, among other things. Lots and lots of other things.
