Cozy and woodsy

We had an awesome time camping here. We were far away enough from our neighbors but close enough at the same time. The shower houses are slightly sketchy. There isnt a place to keep any clothes dry and only one of three showers produced warm water. We showered in our camper instead.

Premium sites are

We paid extra to have a "Premium" site, which meant we got a deck. That deck held our picnic table,  but there was no room to put our camping chairs. And though we were close to the lake, you could not see it through the trees. We could barely get out of our trailer and into the driveway without falling into a ravine. The fire pit had to be put on the back side of our trailer next to the road as that was the only spot it could fit. We were told to check out other sites in case we want to come back. Ha. The staff knew no one who had ever been here would ever take this site! But... we won't need to check out other sites as we'll never come back.

Pre fall weekend

Paint Creek State Park in southwest Ohio, site 14. It’s was supposed to rain, but it didn’t. Nice park. Decent camp store. Nature Center had a couple of programs today. We checked out the monarch butterfly tag and release. Pretty cool, I learned something. They are setting up for Halloween. ATT wireless signal sucks. No WiFi. Which isn’t all bad.
