Knob Noster State Park

We pulled into Knob Noster State Park at 1pm on Sunday and were greeted by the friendly campground hosts.  The drive through the park was beautiful, surrounded by tall trees with plenty of shade.  We parked in slot 24 and pulled out the park map to see what activities and trails were close by.  


Knob Noster State Park is perfect for those who love to hike, fish, run, or bike.  We were very impressed with the trails, layout of the park, and the cleanliness (restrooms included).  There is even a golf course about 1/2 a mile from the park... CJ was excited to see this!

Mountain bikers and hikers, we highly recommend taking the Opossum Hollow trail! This 5.5 mile loop is shady and scenic...great for the beginners too! You can find a park map here.

Also, make sure to take a short walk to Lake Buteo.  The views are beautiful!
