Vacation in Ohio

Indian Lake State Park, Lakeview, Ohio-site B062

 

We arrived at Indian Lake State Park in Lakeview, Ohio around 12:30 pm on Monday in time for lunch.  We left home at 8 am and with a stop 1/2 way for breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Maumee, Ohio. It made it an easy relaxing trip of only 158 miles.  I hope to keep all of our travel days under 200/250 miles.

The campground is huge with 443 nice size sites.  Our site was 50 amps and $27 per night with both sun and shade.  Water is available at the restrooms which were very nice and kept clean. Playgrounds are dispersed throughout the campground, each a little different from the others, which our grandson Wyatt thoroughly enjoyed.  Many campers brought their boats and fishing poles to enjoy.  A large pool is being built by the commissary that is scheduled to be finished later this summer.

A nice size sand beach was within walking distance from our site, which we enjoyed a few days later with our daughter Karen and her family and our grandson Tristan who drove down on Thursday night after work for a couple of days.

Karen and family came on Tuesday from Kentucky with their new to them pop-up camper and set up in the site next to ours.

It sure was good to see them again.  Our times together are too far apart.

Clyde watched the Stanley Cup playoffs while the grandkids played a game of Trouble.

We couldn’t believe how brave the squirrels and birds were.

We really enjoyed our week together with campfires every day and night.  The wood in our new box was just the right amount for our trip.  Thanks again Kevin for our box.  It worked perfectly.  I had the best corn on the cob cooked over the fire.  We hadn’t had it cooked like that in years.  My dad used to cook it that way for us.  Thanks Rob, it was delicious!

Sunday came too soon.  Time to say good-bye and head home.  Vacation wasn’t long enough.  Can’t wait until we are full-time!

Until next time,

Kathryn

Wood Box

We are getting ready for another campout.  This time we will be meeting our daughter and her family in Ohio, which is the 1/2 way point for both of us.  We made reservations at Indian Lake State Park.  Neither of us have been there before.  It is a large State Park and it looks like it should be fun.

We had the wood packed in plastic totes in the carrier behind Winnie to take with us.  We covered the totes with a tarp and bungee cords.  We thought it was good enough.  Apparently our son Kevin did not.  He decided a wood box would be easier and better for us, so he found some old scrap wood and made us one.  Our grandson Tristan came over and gave him a hand in finishing it up.  I really like it.  The box will make getting to the wood so much easier and it keeps the wood dry too.  The box even holds more wood than the original totes.  Nice job guys. Thank you!  Too bad there isn’t a way to use the carrier with the box and pull our car at the same time.

Until next time,

Kathryn
