Spring Camping

One of the benefits of retirement is being able to “camp” on weekdays. Even popular campgrounds usually have a lot campsites available during the spring and fall when schools are in session. Snagging prime campsites during the week at this time of year is much easier.

Sunrise at our campsite.



On early morning walks it’s not unusual to see wildlife wandering the campground when there are so few campers.



There are moments on these walks I miss the simplicity of tent camping…



I miss it until I get back to the warmth of the Silverback’s fireplace, make a pot of coffee, and sit in my recliner to watch the morning news on the television. Nope I couldn’t go back to tent camping.

Nice pics! Man, I'd camp in a tent all the time if all the tent sites looked like that last photo. Well, not really, but dang that's an ideal looking campsite!

Agree, awesome pictures, as for "spring" it can get interesting but you got to love the spirit of little kids. We took our new camper on its first trip this weekend and the furnace didn't work, woke up to 42 degrees in the camper. Instead of hearing Dad, dad, dad I'm cold..... at breakfast my son and daughter start giggling and say "look dad I can see my breath"

Here's to warmers days ahead!!! Excited for a new season thanks for the pictures

Great pics! Those pics looked a lot like Hillman Ferry on Kentucky Lake. I was on my way to the bath house one very early morning when still dark. Surprised a bunch of deer and darn near finished my business on the road! My new TT this year will prevent that!

Tent camping was definitely great but i ain't going back. Getting too old and needing my creature comforts.

Surprises in the dark like that can definitely get the adrenaline flowing.
