“I like the water park,” PHS junior Jimmy Cooper said, “but I think frisbee golf is my favorite activity there.”

For campers, Brighton Recreation has a lot to offer. People who don’t own camping gear can still camp at the state park. The location is close, yet it feels as though you’re miles away from your home.  The recreational parcel allows campers various options of camping, such campgrounds include rustic, modern, modern and rustic cabins, and equestrian.

“I’ve only stayed in the modern cabins,” Cooper said, “but I’m hoping to try some of the other campgrounds as well.”
