There are almost as many activity markers on Fort Parker State Park Campground as there are sites! Thirty-five opportunities to rest your head trace the waters of Fort Parker Lake, where you can explore a handful of picnic areas, a dip in the water, a roam around the playground, or a break to clean off your catch for the day. All sites are developed with a picnic table, water/electric hook-up and nearby restrooms. And remember, the park closes at 10 p.m. except for overnight guests. You know... the residents of the Old Springfield Cemetery and yourself!
