My grandfather always used to call the youngest grandkids "puddle-jumpers." The sheer childlike joy of being swung over a puddle while dangling from between the arms of two adults is a feeling that will always remain with me, and only certain places can evoke the memory of those feelings. Bear Creek Lake State Park, a family-friendly and nature lover's haven, stimulated some of those memories.
Located in central Virginia's Cumberland County south of the James River, there is literally nothing near Bear Creek Lake State Park. Sometimes, though, that's exactly what you want. No grocery stores. Little to no cell service. No flashing neon lights. Nothing but the chirping of insects, the quiet stir of the lake water against the shore, and plenty of puddles for kids - and puppies - to jump over.
Where do you go to unplug from the world?
