We finished our time at FDR State Park August 1st but decided to remain a little longer to help the guys out. We have noticed a huge drop in campers over the last couple of weeks.
Two large areas of the campground is now closed until fall. This past weekend we were about 20% full and by Sunday evening there were NO campers in the campground. Just us and the other campground host in area 5. The only reason they are in area 5 is for security. The electric gates that are supposed to close at 10:00 don’t work. In the past these gates were closed at 10:00 p.m. and opened at 7:00a.m. and the only way you could enter was to use the key code pad.
Mike and I have never felt unsafe in the campground but when it is empty and the gates don’t work you do begin to feel a little weird. We tried to call security once for some weather related reason and nobody ever answered….GREAT!!
The campground host that is taking our place will be arriving in the next few days so we decided to take the manager of Pine Mountain RV Resort up on his offer to work on the website here for a few weeks. He has a few things he wants us to work on and we agreed to help out. The campground is really nice and they are doing more landscaping to enhance the facilities even more. SO TUESDAY WE MOVED…not far mind you but we moved. This is more or less a stopover with perks.
We do not plan on leaving this area until around Labor Day weekend, pending we find a place to park with the Labor Day holiday upon us. Our plans are to head toward the Escapade in Indiana. The Escapade is a huge rally sponsored by the Escapees Club. We plan to meet up with some great friends, meet some new friends and have lots of fun and fellowship.
Hope you are having a great week! Thanks for stopping by and reading our blog. We want to welcome a couple of new “friends” to our readers. We are so glad you found us and hope you enjoy following along.
