Lovely campsites right off the busy highway, next to NWR water - either a small lake or a large pond. Idyllic except for the noise and headlights of the constant semis 300 yds away.

Lucked into this excellent spot again!

I'd say maybe six of the thirteen spots are taken at 3:30 on the Leap Day.

It's a windy day and this exposed point is catching more than it's share of it. But preferable I think to being closer to the road dust.

Much more crowded than it was the other time I stayed here, yet I seem to have gotten the best spot on the lake - go figure!

My previous spot, # 15 at the southeast corner of the lake was taken, as were most spots, but the special one where you take a little side loop out to the point was blessedly empty!

It's 9PM and I have the door open pointed at the southwest corner of the lake here there is still some faint light. Wark enough tohave the door open, but cold enough that the bugs aren't bad!
