Weekend Getway!

We arrived in the afternoon on a Friday at spot 59 with reservations via Reserve America.  We checked in with Terry & Mike the camp hosts located on spot 1.  They are very personable and helpful.   On Saturday morning, the visitors center is about a mile from the campground, we took a morning walk up to check it out and received a free night with our Friends of the Park membership!   In the visitors center you will find friendly staff, souvenirs and other items you may need firewood, ice, etc.  A museum is housed in the visitors center as well.  On the return walk to the campground we explored an old graveyard that was neat.  It went back to early 1800's .

Our 14ft Flyer Pursue was the smallest camper there at the time. Space 59 was very spacious and we had plenty of room. We did notice all the slots on that loop were made to easily back in a camper. We did ride through the other 2 loops and saw a neat 2 in 1 buddy spot you can put two campers on. That would be neat. There was some sediment in the water from the spigot and it seemed to have a bit of a chlorine taste. I would suggest bring your own water or a water filter. However, the bathrooms stayed spotless every time. As with many state parks the bathrooms are a bit dated. The showers were very clean as well, one is smaller than the other.

We found a trial behind our campsite that lead down to the lake.  We could have put our Paddle board & kayad in there but decided to put in at the boat ramp instead, there are many nooks to explore in this lake.  A lot of Parrot feather weed is in the lake and no swimming is allowed.  Hopefully, they will rebuild the beach area that was once behind the New Event Center.  

Fresh Air BarBQ is right down the road if you do not feel like cooking.  There is also the little town of Indian Springs which has some interesting stores I did not get to explore this time but plan on it on my return.
