It’s late into the camping season and we finally made our first camping trip with our RV. We received a free camping trip from the RV dealer and the campground is real nice but it is more than what we have bargained for. This is a member’s only campground and I won’t be mentioning their name since their membership fee is in the $10K and maintenance fee is almost $500 annually. It’s not the easiest task to try to convince the salesperson that this is not something that we could afford, but I’m sure it is a lot harder for them to try to convince us that it’s just a drop in a bucket.
We left Friday evening and got there by 7:30 pm (19:30). The people there were real nice and they helped with the hookup.
There were 2 tent campers there this weekend.
We had a great time, and only felt bad when they tried to sell us the membership on Saturday afternoon. I can’t imagine anyone paying that kind of money during this economic hard time. I guess nothing in life is free, I know now not to put ourselves in this situation again.
This area is about 2.45 minutes drive from us and it’s a bit warmer than our foothills area. I’m glad that there are still some Autumn colors leaves for us to see. The morning walk was a bit chilly.
They have nice cabins by the pond.
This site has a nice view, our site was further away from the pond.
What I like about camping is being close to nature and also to get away from everyday life. I think an RV gives us a freedom to do this since it’s not very expensive to camp, most campgrounds run about $35-$45 per night.
This place have full and semi hookup. I asked for a full hookup when I made a reservation since we were new at this but they gave us a semi hookup with just water and electric instead. I didn’t understand why since they have many empty sites with a full hookup. Our grey water tank was full the second day and it was a lot of work for Bo having to empty it with the portable blue boy.
I’m glad the weather was nice and we had a great time. Our next camping trip will be closer to home and no more free camping trip for us.
