Paint Out-Cross Ranch State Park, Center
You will need a state park pass for access to the park. If you choose to attend the Bluegrass Festival (Music) there will be fees for that. You do not need to attend the festival portion if you do not want, you will be free to paint anywhere else in the park. It will be busy with campers and festival goers but there are plenty of painting opportunities! Plan to paint between 10:00AM and 4:00PM. Allow an hour to drive from Bismarck. I expect there will be a food truck there, or you can pack a lunch.
Attached is a map of the park. Upon entering the park drive past the visitor center and follow the gravel road which curves to the north past the overflow camping on your left, continue to the north end of the park you will find a parking lot with shelters and vault toilets. We will meet at the shelter at 10:00AM, possibly for lunch, and again at 3:30PM for our general critique to conclude the paint out.
