Art and Wine Fest

We’re heading over to the Dam West Campground at Carlyle Lake this weekend for the Art and Wine Festival. This is a very popular event so we had to make our reservations very early. At the time we booked our site we weren’t even sure which weekend the festival would take place on so we reserved our site through next weekend. I guess we’ll have to have our own art and wine fest for the remainder of the time. For me personally, art always looks better after a little wine.

Last year we waited too long before trying to book a site and we missed out. Here’s a picture of a sand sculpture at the festival from two years ago. In case you’re wondering, they’re happy wine grapes.

Heck yes, I even have some of my son-in-law's home brew to share.

Yes, it's about 50 miles east of downtown St. Louis, MO. It's probably my favorite local campground. It's a COE park that has some full hookups and offers good spacing between most of the sites. It's perfect for an outdoor experience and yet, with the town of Carlyle so close, shopping and restaurants are close by.

It would be great to have other FRF members at Carlyle. I'm sure we will be doing this again next year so when I make reservations I'll be sure to post something. Perhaps we could get others to join in too. Dam West is one of the more popular campgrounds in the region so I always recommend reserving a site through recreation.gov.
