Camping at Blue Springs State Park
We took the grands camping this weekend at Blue Springs State Park, just below Troy, AL. The park has 2 octagonal cement pools joined by a large pipe through a cement wall.
The upper pool is fed by a spring and the water temp is 68. Yup, you turn blue. The water flows through a pipe between the pools and then over a small waterfall onto a cement platform.
It keeps flowing over some rocks into a small stream.
Pets cannot swim in the pools, but the creek is fair game.
We also did some of the usual camping stuff, like making Smores.
There were 2 playgrounds, fields for playing games, fishing lake, and paddleboats. Then this morning after a quick swim we headed home, stopped by Troy and loaded DDs things at her apartment. She will have her inspection tomorrow and then be headed home to complete her internship. What a great weekend. Even though it was in the mid 90s and we had thunderstorms every night, the cool spring made it feel great and the days were pleasant.
