Picnic Lunch at McKay Crossing Campground
As I mentioned earlier, my husband and teenagers, along with several other girls, swam and splashed in Paulina creek, while we went on a horseback riding vacation. An hour or so into our trail ride along Paulina Creek, we met up with our bicycling group for a picnic lunch at McKay Crossing Campground. Surrounded by Ponderosa pine, grand and Douglas fir trees, this shaded campground is a beautiful location for day use or overnight camping.
