Grill and Chill at McDowell Nature Preserve
Today, 9:00a - 5:00p
Wanna go on a little camping escapade but don't have the time to go to Appalachia? We've got you covered. McDowell Nature preserve has picnic tables, camping grounds and grills near gorgeous sites.
McDowell Nature Center features a huge park, a variety of ponds, creeks, picnic tables, camping grounds, grills, running and hiking trails. Near enough the city to make it an unburdensome drive, far away enough to feel detached from it all for a moment.
Plenty of access to water and lots kayaks for rent. You can bring the whole family—the area and amenities are very kid friendly (did we mention the playground?), or take in a lazy Sunday afternoon with a friend. The surrounding nature is diverse and the views over the water are simply stunning. Have a big reunion over your own homemade BBQ while watching the sunset over the lakes.
