After Labor Day, the air chills. It’s time to get ready for cool weather camping, and there’s no place like home to do that. Riverside Park is just out of town, and perhaps there’s a few camping opportunities there.
Wow … lots of people are still camping in the river side locations, but we snagged a site.
We’ve a new configuration on the Ford … the Western Wilderness was too big for one person. Oh, it could sleep dozens, with more storage space than a person could use, and automated systems for everything … now it’s replaced by the simple camper shell. This is a trial run to check out how comfortable it might be. The next morning the answer was “very.” Looks like the Western Wilderness will go up for sale. Too bad … it was a beauty!
Enough of that. Over the next days we got to renew our familiarity with Riverside State Park.
Swimming, hiking, kayaking … lots to do.
Local birds are not happy with visitors … squawking incessantly. Must be a nest nearby.
On the other side of the river, at the Equestrian sites, campsites are empty. You don’t need a horse, but corrals are available. We will return this winter! Riverside State Park has a total of 10,000 acres to explore, and it’s only minutes from town.
Indeed it’s going to be a wonderful winter to camp. Hope ya’all are doing the same!
One thought on “Midweek Getaway”
we really enjoy that treasure in our backyard. we hope they have a winter host so the lower sites will be open all year. in fact…I should call the park and find out.
