Greetings to all our returning camper friends, and
those of you who may join us this year!
|Phil, Coni, Rachel & Amanda
Thank you so much to everyone who continue to
provide us with feedback on what you would like
to hear, or see, on our website. We continue to
receive many questions about who are we outside
of the campground. So here goes…
Phil is in constant motion, even during the “off”
season! He can be found building, remodeling,
painting, welding, and fixing on anything and
everything – and typically doing more than one of
these at a time! This year he is happily planning
where everything will fit in the new shed that was
constructed this past season – including some
recliners and a tv….hmmmmm. If you wander down
there, don’t be surprised at what you may find! When
he isn’t running around at the camp, he is chasing
or chauffeuring the girls.
The girls take school very seriously and are
growing up quickly – as many of you who have
children can relate to. Between sports, music and
academics, the running never ends, which is why it
takes us few days to get back to you sometimes.
Coni continues to teach AND enjoy it! The girls
love her teaching as it keeps them off the bus for
rides in and out of town. The only hope of going
south is spring break each year. Coni makes sure
that each message that is left is returned, as well
as emails. However, it sometimes takes a few days,
depending on what the girls have going.
Busy? You bet – but we are thankful to all the
folks who come back, and are grateful to the new
folks we talk to, and want to come camp with us! We
always try our very hardest to get new camping
families in, but we do fill up quick. Don’t be
afraid to go on our call back list though, because
we do work off of it when cancellations happen.
Okay, because this was well received last year, we
thought we’d do it again:
Ten Things at the Camp
10. Shed was
9. Kids learned to wakeboard/waterski
New puppies were brought to the camp!
turtles were caught and released
6. The bear grew
5. New friends were made – AGAIN! Who
would’a thunk it?
4. Loved ones were remembered
3. Lavern and Sheldon (the ducks made
friends with everyone!)
2. Card playing in the
1. Brad made employee of the year!
year, there are so many cool things that happen; it
just makes the summer fly by! We are thankful to the
great campers who joined us again this year. We
continue to be impressed with the folks who come to
stay with us. You help us keep the park family
orientated and respectful. We realize that we have a
lot of rules; most of them are common sense to help
keep the park clean, safe, fun and respectful of
each other, ourselves, and our environment. Thank
you to the friends who bring friends with them, or
send good folks our way that respect our campground,
and appreciate our regulations to help keep our park
in good standing. We appreciate your patronage,
endorsements and support.
We strongly encourage folks who are new to our
campground to take a peek at the Rules and Regs page
before making a reservation with us. We do enforce
the rules and our quiet hours – no matter what day
of the week, or if you have stayed with us before.
We expect all our guests to be respectful and
courteous of the rules and quiet hours that are
established for everyone who stays with us.
Changes to the campground this year:
More trees trimmed, more trees planted, more
grass planted, shed was completed, new fences, and a
new dock is being constructed.
Last year, we asked our guests to refrain from
using mats/rugs on the grass – and what a
difference! There was grass throughout the season
for campers! The tent sites are always dirtish – but
the camper sites did well. So, we will continue to
ask that the mats/rugs stay on the cement patios
this year because the comments from the late season
campers were complimentary to preceding campers.
Take care everyone! We can’t wait to see you all
again, and to meet you newbies!
Phil, Coni, Rachel and Amanda
