If you’re looking to turn a day trip into an overnighter, book a cozy cabin at Crowley’s Ridge State Park. Many of the park’s structures, including a two-bedroom cabin, were constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps with native logs and stones. A night in a CCC cabin at Crowley’s Ridge State Park is a getaway on its own.
