The two RV Gypsies at
Blue Lake RV Resort
In Naples, Idaho
July 9, 2013

Blue Lake RV Resort is located by Bonners Ferry and Blue Lake, which had a dock and canoe rentals (no motors allowed). Swimming was at your own risk. They can accommodate big rigs, RV Groups, and tents, and had cabins to rent. There were nice tall pine trees in the park. A few TV stations came in OK. Their Wi-Fi was fast. Check out time was noon. There is a casino, golf course, National Wildlife Refuge, and Kootenai River nearby. The park was run by a very nice young couple. Pacific Standard Time Zone. Elevation 1,896 feet

 

As the two RV Gypsies, turned off the road to enter the park, they had to cross a railroad track with no stop gates. Yes, that meant trains with loud horns were heard in the park.

Horses from a neighboring area came into the campground because "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence". The horses were right beside the RV of the two RV Gypsies.

Behind the office, there was a deck where they held entertainment one night; two guys singing and playing instruments. They were very good. The park also sold wine and beer to those over 21 during the entertainment. While on that deck Lee Duquette noticed giant pick-up sticks in the huge area behind the office and deck. So of course he had to go play with the giant pick-up sticks.

While Lee was playing with the giant pick-up sticks, Karen tried out some of the exercise equipment on the nearby deck. That didn't last too long though because Karen heard a hammock calling her name.

Then Karen decided she would rather relax in the hammock than exercise. Oh Yeah! Lee enjoyed sitting in the lawn chairs by the lake and watching the kids swim while Karen relaxed in the hammock.

One of the trees the hammock was tied to had wooden chimes that swung in the gentle breeze, making a clicking noise that helped Karen relax. There were also several cute little things all around. This was a very nice area of the park.
