Beautiful book! Organized and well laid out
I guess I misunderstood what it was. I thought it was a guide—would have information about places—-and not just a journal. I’m going to donate it.
Excellent quality and content. This is going to be great for weekend trips around the state!
It’s a diary type book - nice quality. I had expected more of an info on each park
Cute journal. The Virginia one has QR codes to access information on each park.
Bought it as a gift for a friend
Very nice layout. Enjoy tracking my visits to State Parks. Hope to visit more parks later this year. The
Not a book about the parks or locations it is for children to fill out. I want to return it
It’s a gift for my daughter and her family. Thumbed through it and I think they will have fun exploring and notating.
This looks to be a great way to capture our State Park adventures!! I love that it has a place for us to plan ahead!
Great to have all the Parks and Forests mapped. Plus to have to QR codes that take you to the actual site for more info is awesome. Love it!
I was let down as this is simply a log book of parks you are visiting. Not much in the way of what to do at each park other than listing phone numbers and website addresses.
Helps organize one’s trip and consider all important aspects of the trip
It’s a gift for my granddaughters birthday so she hasn’t used it yet.
We have used it already! We love filling in the journal and recording the memories and anecdotes. My kids really loved debating the star rating
I gave this as a gift. I am sure they will enjoy it.
I purchased this for my wife ahead of our travels and we couldn't be happier. A very well written and organized book! A wonderful companion for our adventures.
It was great!
Well it does list all the state parks, forests, nature preserves etc. It would have been great to have seen maybe one photo of each area named that would have caught my eye and made me want to visit that state park.
Will be nice to enjoy when traveling.
I really can't answer, as I purchased this for my granddaughter for her birthday in October. She showed interest in the Journal for her son and husband to travel in the future when he is older. Thought this would be a wonderful gift.
I purchased the Virginia State Parks book after receiving the Maryland State Parks book for Christmas. Though I have no visited any Virginia State Parks YET, my two sons and I have spent the summer exploring as many Maryland State Parks as we can! I absolutely love the journaling prompts and being able to reflect on our adventures. I also appreciate that I am able to add a picture or stamp or sticker or postcard or WHATEVER to the journal page. I know when my boys are older we will enjoy reading through our adventures as a family. I truly cannot put a value on how much joy this book has brought my family, and how it has forced us (in a good way!) to get out and explore our home state of Maryland!
This was a gift and it was greatly received!
I'm excited about having a way to track my visits to Virginia's parks and forests. I had no idea we had so many "official" forests!!!
I just got it so I haven't had a chance to really dig into it yet.
It is very well made and will hold up over the years it will take me to fill it out. Great Quality. Love that there is a place for a photo or postcard from each park.
I bought this as a gift for my son and his family. They love to hike and camp and have been to a few places in the book. They were so excited for this so they can record family memories.
These are terrific gifts to give to : newlyweds, or people relocating out-of-state to retire/new job. We gave our books to our 3 sons, all who live in our State (VA). All have families. One son suggested each State should send information about getting annual passes to their State (if they're required). Thats another way for each state to get additional funds for their Park System.

I purchased this book to add to a retirement gift basket for a friend who just bought a camper and planned to take up camping as a retirement hobby. I was pleased to see it was a quality bound book and the perfect compliment to my gift. The receipt loved it, and was excited about making plans to start visiting all the VA State Parks!
Making plans for the upcoming year and can't wait to get to each one of the places in the book! I'm looking forward to going to these with my family.
The book has a nice layout and I learned a lot of new things and I am looking forward to new adventures using the book. Thank you!
Family loved their present. Can't wait to explore the parks
I bought one for my daughter for Christmas and her family absolutely loved it. My granddaughter loved it so much that I just ordered one for her for birthday. They love going hiking and love nature.
** The 2 page layout is easy to use for each park or forest. ** The construction of the book seems sturdy and likely to last. ** I wish there was a little more detail about the park itself, such as address, website, known for (i.e., hiking, waterfalls, history, events). ** On the map page, it would have saved me some time to know the markers were the page numbers. I thought the parks were numbered (Looked for number 1 to find Bear Creek Lake State Park).
I like to books, general details to log my travels and hikes
This was a gift for my daughter (at her request). She loves it and is looking forward to journaling her adventures in Virginia.
A wonderful way to plan my summer trips. So happy I got this. Love it!
