Hawn State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Though the campground in Hawn State Park is more developed than most of the campgrounds in this book, with electricity and concrete parking pads at many sites, I included it for the natural beauty of the campground and the wild atmosphere of the nearly 5,000 acres contained in the park’s boundaries.
Located in the flat bottom of a steep-walled hollow, the campground is nestled in a meander of Pickle Creek. Hawn State Park is named for Helen Coffer Hawn, a teacher in nearby Ste. Genevieve, who in 1952 donated the park’s first 1,459 acres. Her namesake park is a wonderful place to spend a few days relaxing in nature’s splendor."
