We belong to Resorts of Distinction, so we can stay free at any of the ROD campgrounds, 1/2 price at any North American campgrounds, and we get a discount at AOR and ACN campgrounds; however, there are a lot of miles between most of them and we have to either stay at other campgrounds or boondock as well, so we joined Passport America yesterday. It costs $44.00 and for that membership fee you get 1/2 off the price of all the campgrounds they represent. They seem to have a ton of them.
On the way, we passed a couple of disconcerting signs.
We ended up at Big Chief Campgrounds in a little town called Burnet. It is a Passport America campground, the usual cost is $34.00, so our cost is $17.00. If you camp enough these memberships are really worth the fee.
The wind is gushing so hard the Mrytle feels more like a boat than a mortorhome. There is a nice pool here with a hot tub. We may just find ourselves soaking in that hot tub after dinner.
The campground is on a lake. Texas was hit hard with a drought last summer and autumn. They have been having consistent rain since the end of November, but the lakes are still very low.
The docks for the houses around the lake are all about 100 yards away from the water.
Nothing like lake front propety. If the lake would come back.
The dam is also but 100 yards away from the water. Gerry stood beside the dam to give us some perspective.
Do you see the tree stumps? They were all under water. I wonder how long this dam has been here.
