Campsites with a view

I love it when I get a campsite with a nice view. All too often we end up with a view of other campsites from our windows. Currently we have a water view on two sides of our camper.

Looks like a beautiful spot Oakman!

We're still new to camping at actual campgrounds (have done more yard camping than anything so far), but I have a couple of pics from our stay at Horseneck Beach in Westport, MA earlier this year. We were able to camp within 50 yards of the beach. Best view so far.

What a great view Oakman! You also have to have a rig like that to get that view from inside.

Hey, is that Forest Jump up on the wall above the dinette?

Nice photos force, it must be nice to see the beach from your trailer.

Gregg Willow, yes that is Forest Jump above the window. He has become part of our stuffed animal collection that live in our trailer.

Actually I could fish from the trailer...if I had an Illinois fishing license. Normally the water wouldn't be this close to the campsite but the lake is 7 feet above normal pool right now.

Here's a pic of our campsite.

Nice view! Looks like you backed down a boat ramp and setup camp there
