The view from the campsite was very nice with the ships passing through the locks. The weather was perfect, 70-72 degrees during the day and cool enough for a campfire at night. I find the campfire concept funny. Not only are we too hot in Texas during the summer but often in a burn ban so no S'Mores for us here!
The whole family came for a barbeque one evening. It was wonderful to see everyone. There were no fire ants, mosquitoes or snakes to worry about. I found that refreshing.
