Campground flood water

Many of the sites are closed due to high water here at Coles Creek on Carlyle Lake in IL. The campground host told us that if we receive 2 inches or more of rain the entire campground will be closed and we'll have to leave. Come on Mother Nature, cut me some slack. Looking at our fifth wheel across the flooded site 34.

You could have just got 6 more inches of snow and 12+ at the campsites!

I feel for you Oakman but I have yet to be able to go at all because of snow. Going to be close to July before I can camp without mud in the Mountains.

Yes, that really is worse. It's raining hard right now so we're hoping for the best.

At least you're not getting charged extra for a water view. Seriously, I hope it starts to get better for you real soon!

Oakman, I seen the water come up 10 ft on a sloped bank and flood a buddy of mine tent in 1 night.

Be careful and good luck.
