. . .on the flip side. . . . I was tired of chasing after some high volume campgrounds where everyone camped. Started to check out other CGs and WOW! Did I find some hidden gems! - sure some bummers too but the good new ones far exceeded the number of disappointing ones. -- My thought, my : If a campground creates anxiety (barking dogs, partiers, crowds, reservations), try someplace else. Camping is supposed to get rid of the ulcers, not cultivate them. So many state parks, private campgrounds, National Parks, National Forests, BLM, etc, and so little time!!! --I heard someone once say, "Illegitimi non carborundum (I can say that, can't I? )" Words to live by in today's pressure cooker!
