When the River rises

We pulled in several hours early and were allowed to go immediately to our campsite, #121.  The camp hosts were extremely nice.  It was a back-in, across the road from the river, and next door to the bathrooms.  The campsites around us were electrical only, but it just so happens that the water for our area was at site 121.  This was a very shady site.  It rained off and on all afternoon and evening.  That didn't keep us from enjoying the beautiful Roaring River and pointing out all the trout visible in its waters.  This is a fisherman's heaven.

While there is much to do at Roaring River, for us it was cut super short.  The National WX service issued flood warnings, so at 10:15pm our camp host knocked on our door and said the Park Ranger advised us to leave.  Even with the light rain, this particular site was already full of puddles.  So we obediently packed up, with water up to our ankles as we headed for high ground.  As the following day's forecast continued with rain and predictions of flood we bailed and headed for a different campground.  The rest rooms were clean and there were plenty of individual showers, but we did not have a chance to check them out.
