It was dark when I got there and there two water faucets, one on each side of the power pole. I thought it was a double spot but it was not marked as one on the map and it turned out it wasn't. That's why I think they may have put some sites together at some point.
The spot across from me and to the left was on the water. It was taken when I got there and I decided it wasn't worth moving the next day. There was also a great trail near that went to the water and had a few historical markers. We ran into the campground host on the trail and he was a wealth of history about the island. He and his wife had been coming there for years as hosts.
We did not see any alligators. There was an alligator pond but we were told they were seldom seen there. This is unlike my favorite campground back "home" on a bayou that runs into the Gulf. There is a gator pond there and you can find him almost all the time.
SusieQ, did you walk over to the gated community across the road with the golf course? One million dollars is the starting price to live there and we got to camp for $30 next door. Excellent.
No we didn't. But we did get the story of how the bridge was built and the island became a retreat for the elite. We just stayed in the park and ignored the outside world. It's like that when we camp at First Landing on the bay at VA Beach. We pretend there's not a McDonald's right down the road, and it is believable.
Looks awesome! just makes me want mine done now.. I see you have the hose hooked up to where your water fill thing was. Can I get a close up of photo of that? I hadn't thought about doing that, but it does make since because I am getting rid of the water tank. And I like your out water bin on the outside, I know some keep them under the sink, but the compact is too small for that. Maybe you can send a link to the piece you used for that? I keep looking at the photo, is that a hose hooked up an electric cord?
