Weekend Camping



The campgrounds fill up on the weekends. All the locals come out to play. That's nice in a way. I get tired of seeing only retired people. A lot of folks take the kids camping and that's a great way to build memories. My parents took me camping when I was little and my lovely wife and I did the same with out kids.

One the downside, the campgrounds fill right up. We were unable to book the weekend here are Juniper Springs. However, there's a trick to that too. While we couldn't get in for Saturday, we did have reservations that included Friday. Saturday morning we hustled right up to the office and put our name in for any openings. They were able to squeeze us in on a different site.

As luck would have it, we are in exactly the same campsite that we stayed at back in January. It's like coming home.

I drove my lovely wife into the big city of Ocala. She was running low on crafting supplies. Can't let that happen. When in the “big” city, we had a late lunch at Panera Bread. My lovely wife did a lot of searching on the 'net, planning our next camping adventures. We are looking into staying at different places on the way north. We'll probably stay in Florida the rest of the month though. No matter what the calendar says, it's still winter in northern New Hampshire.

  1. It still feels like winter in WV, too, and maybe VA.

  2. Stay warm and have fun! Hanging around Florida for a bit longer might be a good idea.

    1. Family duties may bring me back sooner than the warm weather. Oh well. Enjoying the time I have here.

  3. Six I have been online looking at our camping choices for the summer . To keep upfront cost down I will be reserving several weekends but not the weekdays. like your seeing they have plenty of openings.While camping is getting more popular state and federal facilities are slow to expand capacity. I know full hookups is what most want and that cost a lot per site. Most parks could install dry camp sites for under a few hundred dollars a site. And would make a profit on weekend overflow.

    1. I kinda prefer the campgrounds without full hookups. I don't need them and it keeps a lot of the huge RVs out.

  4. Yeah it's definitely still winter up here, but mother nature will psych us out a couple more times before mud-season really arrives :)
