Lake Hope is where my two aunts, my sister, and I camp every year for atleast once a week during the summer. Its so peaceful, we love the nature center. No matter how many times weve been there it never fails to be awesome. Every Saturday night they have movie night at the ampitheather we always go and its not just for the popcorn and kool-aid! The wild life is also great Zaleski state park is a beautiful one. If you ever think about going dont hesitate to! Its a wonderful experience!!! <3
