Honest to goodness, you will have a field day at Lincoln State Campground. Here you can discover the forested beauty that our 16th president himself used to experience every day as a young boy. The rolling hills and lush foliage are a sight to see, even aside from presidential flair and all. There are two glassy lakes on which to canoe or fish, 10 miles of trails to explore, and plenty of historic camp vibes abounding.
