Sherry's niece Amy and her husband Phil bought a new camper and invited us to join them in a camping weekend at Quabache State Park in Bluffton, Indiana. We said we would love to. This campground is only 12 miles from our home and we love the park. The pronunciation is "Wabash" and is the French spelling of the Indian word.
This park was built by the Civilian Conservation Corp during the 1930's. The friends of the park have erected a statue of a man commemorating the work of the corps. The buildings are log with wood shake roofs and beautiful laid stonework. There is also a fire tower you can climb. The park has several miles of paved bike trails and you can also ride your bike into the River Green Way walking and biking trail that is along the Wabash River into the town of Bluffton. This trail has several carved animals along the way. The park has Kunkle Lake that you can fish or boat no motor.

Kids and adult love the Bison that are located in the park along with the beautiful large in ground pool area. This park has a lot to offer and they plan many events and nature talks and crafts for your enjoyment.
This weekend was fun as we met several families that were Amy's friends. We celebrated her daughter Brooke's birthday. This meant great grand parents and grandparents also came to the park. Brooke enjoyed the surprise party and received lots of gifts.
