Camp Trip #4~Hamilton Branch 4th of July

One of our goals when we bought our camper a few months ago was to try out and explore as many different campgrounds as we could. It becomes so easy when you find a site you love to become stuck in a rut with that site and to never venture elsewhere. Our trip this weekend was to a campground that we had never heard of. I would mention it to different people who camp and they too had never heard of it. I will admit, by the time we were packing up to leave I was a little concerned.
This is what we pulled up to....

This was our gorgeous view! We got out of the truck and started looking around and fell in love at that moment. It was a diamond in the rough. A perfect place to camp that has still been kept somewhat secret....and we now have a new favorite camping spot!
We had lots of little adventures:
skinny dipping at midnight,
going off into "snake land" to rescue a ball and float.
playing in mud,
collecting firewood, hanging our head out the windows, exploring new islands,

asking our neighbors for boat rides (this is not the boat we rode on but isn't this thing cool!?)

bathing in the lake,
We had great company,
good food and drink,
and overall a really great time! We can't wait to come back here. Labor Day Weekend, here we come!
