Lewis and Clark Lake
I camp to be in and with Nature and to get away from people.
There is a long story leading into this but I’ll save that for the eBook. It is hot everywhere in the country. If we are in shade we’re okay. So we moved north into South Dakota where it was ten degrees cooler. I thought I would go with a State park where I could plug into electric since the solar panels would not work in shade. After a hundred mile drive we arrived. The sign entrance states if you don’t have a reservation call this number or go online to this site. I am hot, tired, hungry and just want my cup of tea. I don’t need the frustration of trying to figure out a website reservation system. There is no one to talk to either (I later learn if I call I would be put on hold for a long time). I don’t bother checking the other four state campgrounds nearby. We leave the near empty campground behind and move down to the Army Corps of Engineers campground. Same story there but at least there is someone to talk to. She helps me and says they are all reserved out (77 sites) but “go across the dam as they have more shade and you probably can get a spot there.” Thank you kind lady.
Over the dam and now back in Nebraska there are 42 sites in a long row all angle parked in door handle to door handle. There are a few spots open. I drive along thinking I can’t do this.
