I learned a valuable camping lesson this weekend. If it looks like the best area to camp in the whole park, it is likely a lot of other people know this too and they have a bunch of bratty kids. Yep, out of control children whose parents could care less what they were doing were running rampant through the park this weekend. Running through our campsight, screaming at the top of their lungs, even after quiet time began in the dark. I was just about to drag myself down to the office and complain when one of the over-excited kids tripped over a fire pit ring in the dark and had to limp back to Mom and Dad, who FINALLY put the lid on the whole affair. But, by 7am it started all over again on Saturday. Luckily some rain now and then kept it less noisy for a few hours while they were inside their 5th wheel rolling McMansion playing their hand held video games or watching videos or whatever Additionally, same camping group had a real roblem keeping their dogs leashed. Totally inconsiderate. Anyhow, we saw many other areas that we could have camped in that were less pretty or less shady, but would have definitely been a lot quieter. As a result, I will avoid sight #152 and the sights around it from now on, because that is NOT a well kept secret. There were some pull through sights across the way that were completely deserted, not to mention some primitive sights that not only were secluded but beautiful. Next time, we boondock it back in those primitive woods. The park itself is grand. It has great amenities, shower houses are cleaned regularly and on schedule, the campstore is STOCKED with plenty of things for your trip. Fishing sights are plentiful and in good condition. The lake is gorgeous and big. Those of you who are religious minded will REALLY like the Chapel in the Woods, which has 8am services on Sundays and is a 30 step walk on a trail through the woods into a pretty outdoor chapel. I really like this park, my experience with other campers aside, I have to say it is one of the nicest state parks I have camped in yet.
