The "We got mud!" campground

OF THE TWO RV GYPSIES

After Lee Duquette checked into the office, he was told to follow the red car to their assigned space. The lady driving the red car drove too fast and when she finally stopped, Lee also stopped the RV. But by then he was past the spot she wanted him to park in, so he had to unhook the tow car and back up the RV to get into the spot. This has never happened at a campground before. And it wouldn't be that bad except for the fact that a motorhome towing cannot back up, and plus at that point, the road was quite muddy which made backing up more difficult and messy. Yes, it had rained a lot lately, actually for about the last week everywhere the two RV Gypsies were, but they have never encountered so much mud.

The entry sign even said, "We got mud!" Karen did not realize that Lee had booked them at an ATV friendly campground. The place was full of ATV's and rednecks yelling "We got Mud!."

unhappy faceNo 50 amp sites were available, but the two RV Gypsies did get 30 amp, full hook-up site. No brochure was given to the two RV Gypsies at check-in. It seemed as if this campground had no rules at all. Old rotted RVs were parked in spaces, one even had a big tarp over its entire roof. It looked like a lot of the RVs never move so it must be the locals use them on weekends so they can ATV around the park.

unhappy faceNo TV. No campground Wi-Fi. Luckily the two RV Gypsies had their own Wi-Fi. And the site that the two RV Gypsies were assigned, as well as many others, had empty bottles and beer cans and trash laying around. No rules here.

unhappy faceOn the first night there, someone was yelling "We Got Mud" for one hour straight - 11 p.m. to midnight. When the yelling stopped at midnight, someone started playing loud music until 1:45 a.m.. ATVs were still driving around the campground until 2 a.m. The second night was a Sunday night, so it was mostly quiet. Advise to RVers. Do NOT go to this campground unless you have an ATV and want to yell, "We Got Mud" and do not go to a campground with no rules.

lots of dirty ATVs everywhere

Below: At first there were some paved roads, but that ended quickly. Notice the trailer parked and how dirty it is. And see how far ahead the red car was the the two RV Gypsies were supposed to follow.

unhappy faceMud the two RV Gypsies had to drive through to park in their site. And a clothesline above a wooden plank. When Karen stood on the wooden plank to get out of the mud, the clothesline came right to her neck. Good way to get injured. Most campgrounds would never allow clotheslines, especially on trees. Lee took it down.

Thank goodness there was some gravel to try to get around the mud.

The lake in the campground is advertised as a 17-acre lake, but it sure looked small.

When the two RV Gypsies went to town, they walked in puddles to clean the Mud off the bottom of their shoes.
