A short break not worrying about money is the best remedy to a stressful week at work, but can also be hard to organize when the costs keep piling up. Ponderosa State Park is an outstanding area of immense natural beauty, and is a popular destination all year round thanks to its abundance of outdoor activities. It’s a true gem that shouldn’t be missed out on, and with the range of affordable camping options available, you can make your budget weekend getaway a reality, without having to skip out on quality. Explore the vast network of hiking trails that run through the park, and take a peaceful stroll through the wildflower meadows in the summertime. You can also enjoy horse riding through the trees here, or head out to Payette Lake for lakeside views.
