Aug 13, 2018 - Millersylvania State Park

I was given information about a couple of state parks in the area so I looked them up to see if there were letterboxes there. Bingo with Millersylvania State Park south of Olympia. The campground is on the north side, so I decided to go the scenic route and not on I-5. It started out okay but soon enough I was sitting for 20 minutes at a construction site where they are building a traffic circle! They do love their circles in the residential districts! The park was given to the State of Washington in 1921 to be used as a park forever! The...

Jun 19, 2018 - An Early 75th Birthday

Millersylvania State Park June 14-18, 2018 Twenty miles south of our place, Millersylvania SP is a “go-to” state park.

Jun 10, 2009 - Second Voyage: Millersylvania SP

Millersylvania SP (WA) May 26-29, 2009 In addition to getting out camping yet again, a purported reason for this trip was to see how well the unit did when dry-camping. Millersvania SP is about fifteen miles directly south of Lacey, as the proverbial crow-flies. By freeway and roads, we drove about twenty miles from house to camp-site. I’d made reservations with hook-ups. But we decided to try “dry” camping as long as we could. After we got the motor home set-up, we took Nick for a walk through the woods to Deep Lake. While walking along...
