When my oldest sister visited during Christmas we wanted to take her camping at Green Mountain Park but they were closed for the Winter, and we ended up camping by the lake instead. This place used to be for members only, but now it is opened to the public. It was a long weekend and we got there on Friday and came home on Sunday. We parked in the downtown area with creek on the side and behind.
My dad and sister really liked this place. It is still very woodsy and close to home.
The nature trail is a short cut to the general store, otherwise we would have to take the hilly road.
Photo from left to right, Max, Bo, Lee and my sister. It was a nice surprise when we saw the small waterfalls, Max loved it.
The cabins by the lake are for rent.
We saw a snake by the creek, Lee almost stepped on it.
I do love the scenery of this cabin.
I wonder if this is the same size as our house in Thailand. My dad and sisters built it themselves and it seemed small but plenty big enough for the ten of us.
Some of these cabins are for sale, and some are rental for members and their families only.
We spent a lot of time walking, sight seeing and it’s mostly uphill.
We never did find out what’s inside the cave, and after we saw the snake earlier we didn’t want to encounter one or a few in the dark.
I have never seen a camper like this before, a pop up on top of a camper.
After seeing the snake, I didn’t think tent camping is such a good idea.
Lee purchased a birdhouse at the general store for a souvenir.
And my sister got her a wind-charm.
Transportation of choice at the campground is a golf cart.
This one seems out of place.
Lee got a piggy back ride.
There are several spots that we like to go back and stay, and this is one of them.
We had a nice time, and I didn’t get to take any food photo since I had to help prepare the foods. Perhaps better luck next time.
