First and Last camping trip this season!!!

We set up Saturday in our brand new fully groomed new site. By Monday morning our camping season was over. So upset and so disappointed.

So Sorry

Sorry his happened to you.

This is one of my biggest concerns where I am. There are some very tall trees all around me and almost everybody else. It was very windy yesterday and I was watching those trees bending, just wanting to topple. I take my dogs running back in the woods a couple times per day and I am always noticing newly-fallen trees back there. I guess it’s just a matter of time before one falls on my camper. I dread that day.

Good luck getting back out.

I live in a very heavily wooded park. I have a 16 year old camper because of it that we leave there all the time. If one comes down we are only out about $6000.00 dollars. It happens but I would never stay in a cow pasture. I love trees.

Awful. Glad nobody was hurt or killed. Those two kids in the back seat of a car in East Texas were not so lucky.

I should have mentioned that no one was hurt, thank God. We were not directly at the camper when it happened. The camper was fine at 7AM and by 8AM - done for.
The thing is that the campground had called in a tree surgeon in fall and they had taken out all the dead trees that they thought were in danger of falling over. This PINE was a healthy tree, but we have had so much rain the ground is saturated and with the heavy winds over it came, roots and all.
Also, we had been on a waiting list for a seasonal site and finally got one of the ones we wanted. Never even slept there.
I just don't know where to start. We have the site for the rest of the season. I am not one to just run out and buy something, it took me a long to find the right camper for us....guess I am fussy. Not sure if I can "sub-let" the site or if it will need to sit empty. A lot to think about.

Thanks for all the well wishes!!
