A lot of families with their children are visiting the Giant City State Park in order to enjoy the Autumn season. They say that it’s the perfect time to visit the state parks because the leaves are now beginning to change.
October is the peak season for Giant City State Park’s visitors. Almost all campsites are fully booked before the weather becomes too cold.
Several events drawing people outdoors, are taking place near Makanda next weekend. ‘Becoming an Outdoors Woman’ will be held at Touch of Nature, VultureFest in downtown Makanda and Bald Knob will host its yearly ‘Fall Colors at the Cross.’
