Campbell Recreation Area is a big area, with two separate areas. When you’re pulling in, the softball fields, volleyball courts, and one basic playground are all to the left. To the right/center are the newer playgrounds, with a separate toddler-friendly playset. A small paved loop around the shelter is great for kids to bike or ride toys around. There is easy creek splashing access here, you can see more specific details about how to get into the water in this post.
