We arrived at the campground around 7:45 pm so the store was closed. We registered at the drop box and headed through the broken gate toward the campground. As we drove in we saw a field of RVs all looking abandoned. The grass was overgrown around them and it looked like an RV ghost town. We then came upon the first area of campsites which was closed off and overgrown as well, this place was starting to look a little spooky.
The next camping area was open and there were about 6 groups camping along the water, one group was in the back corner of the campground and the rest of the sites were open. We picked a site away from the water because of our experience at the beach front campsite in North Carolina and the wind coming off of the lake at this one.
There is a 30% chance of rain for the evening and this is our last night camping. Hopefully we will stay dry because the tent was wet from the dew at the last campground and it wasn’t going to stop a rain storm for very long.
We set up the tent quickly and threw the fan inside to try to get some air circulation to help dry out the tent as much as possible. We took the dogs for a walk around the campground and down by the lake. The water was clean and clear and there were some people fishing behind their campsite. Everyone camping along the water was in an RV except one group that had two tents that were blown up like inflatable decorations because of the wind coming off of the lake. Hopefully they wouldn’t have too much excitement if the storm did pick up but it did look like the storm was breaking up which is good for us.
We decided to try to build a fire with wood that someone had left behind, we needed to use up our lighter fluid and we didn’t have anything else to do. It wasn’t the best fire but at least it kept us busy and helped us use up some paper bags we had been saving incase a fire wouldn’t start.
We had a can of Woldgang Puck’s chicken noodle soup for dinner, none of us were very hungry but we didn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night hungry either.
Finally the clouds cleared and the stars filled the sky. The campground got quiet and we climbed into the tent for bed.
