Boiling Springs State Park
An oasis on the plains, Boiling Springs State Park captures some of the finest elements of nature. The park is one of seven original state parks built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Named after a natural "boiling" spring that still flows, visitors can view the park's namesake attraction in a natural wooden shelter and interpretive center below the park office.
All RV, cabins and tent campsites within the 820-acre park can be reserved online. Some RV sites are available with 30 and or 50-amp electric service and water hookups. Most sites are back-in, however some are pull-through. A queen-sized pillowtop bed is offered in the bedroom of cabins one, two and three, while cabin four has two twin-sized beds. Each cabin offers a sleeper sofa, kitchenette with microwave, oven, refrigerator, sink and fully-stocked cabinets with cookware and tableware. All linens are provided, and each cabin comes with heat, air and a fireplace. Pets are allowed in all the cabins for a small fee.
Two group camps are also available. Group Camp 1 has 11 bunkhouses that can sleep 168 people, and Group Camp 2 has 10 bunkhouses with a total of 144 beds. Both group camps come with kitchen and dining halls, as well as bathroom facilities. Reservations can be made by calling the park office.
Find more than 150 picnic tables and grills throughout the park. Guests can access one of three pavilions with electrical outlets, a cookout grill and water. Enjoy swimming in the pool, fishing in the 7-acre spring-fed Shaul Lake and hiking the trails. The Boiling Springs State Park Trail System includes five hiking and mountain trails of various lengths that are perfect for beginners.
Golfers will enjoy the privately-owned and operated Boiling Springs Golf Club, adjacent to the park. This 18-hole course features several dogleg fairways, sand traps and water hazards. The twelfth hole is a 440-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot up a tree-lined, dogleg fairway.
