These are some of the things I learned while camping on Memorial Day Weekend. We usually do not camp on Memorial Day weekend. It seems like we always have something else going on. So this year when our schedule opened up, we were ready. Let’s camp!
Things I Learned This Past Weekend
Make reservations early when camping on holiday weekends. When our schedule opened up, we felt ready to camp, but we were lacking the all important reservation for our campsite. No problem. I went to the Georgia State Parks website and checked for an open campsite. Out of over 40 state parks which offer camping, we found about 4 that were not booked solid. Luckily, I kept looking on the website every day and eventually a campsite came available that we felt would be a good option for us.
The snakes are crawling (and swimming). We saw 2 snakes this weekend, one while we were fishing and one while we were out exploring. We gave them their space and they gave us ours.
Peach cobbler tastes good made in a Dutch oven over the campfire (Recipe coming later this week).
Watching my kids catch fish is fun. I only caught one fish this weekend. I spent most of my time entertaining and keeping Baby Girl safe while my hubby kept the kids’ rod and reels rigged up, untangled, etc… My kids on the other hand, caught over 30 fish between them. They had a blast. It was a lot of fun to see them happy and becoming pretty good fishermen.
With a little luck, you can find some peace and quiet even in a busy campground. Apparently, there were a couple of no shows in our campground. We found a campsite with an empty site on both sides of us. Oh, yeah!
All in all, our Memorial Day camping trip turned out to be a lot of fun.
I’ll see ya by the campfire.
Did you camp this past weekend? Did you have fun? Catch any fish? We would love to hear about it in our comments below. And be sure to post some pictures on our facebook page.
