CAMPGROUND: Lake Claiborne State Park. Beautiful pull-through sites. Right on water, and most sites have their own boat ramp. Woodsy. Free laundry! Electricity and water hook-ups. Very nice bathroom. $22/night. 5 stars out of 5
LOCATION: Northcentral Louisiana, out in the middle of nowhere
WEATHER: WET! And cold!
We awoke at the Harvest Host brewery with 37 degree temps. We knew a cold front was coming this way. So, we jumped in the truck and started south. We drove through rain all day long. We drove until the thermostat hit 50 and it stopped raining – here in northern Louisiana.
The campground is super nice. I was going to start a fire, but it was too windy. Then, in the evening it started to rain. And it rained, and rained and rained. It rained all night. The trails are now rivers. It has been raining here a lot, so the rain is not soaking in – just making puddles all over the place. This is what the park looks like when it is nice (photo compliments of the internet)
DINNER: Rigatoni with basil sauce, meatballs, onions and mushrooms. Cabbage salad with a cilantro/lime dressing.
