Our Campground Is Boring

We have decided that this is the most boring campground that we have stayed. They have a pool, activities and events. So, why do we think it is boring? We are in an area where we don't see anything that is going on. I know, we should be thankful we are in a quiet place, but we enjoy seeing people come and go. Mom was very excited when she found out an Elvis impersonator was appearing here. We walked up to see him and I flopped down on the ground. Do you know what happened? They kicked us out!  No dogs allowed! It was an outdoor event, so Mom didn't think it would be a problem. After we got home, she read the rules and sure enough it said that pets were not allowed at any gatherings.

There are a lot of people that keep their campers here all year and they come out on weekends. We have found many of these people are not very friendly as we are outsiders. A few people talk to us, but not very many.  A couple people did speak to us last weekend and said I was a good looking dog.  Duh!

The people who live here long-term have a club called the Chipmunk Club.  The store sells t-shirts that are only for the club members.  Visitors like us are not allowed to buy them.  It's not like Mom wants one, but why have them on display in the store?  Can't they have them under the counter and club members can just ask for them?  It just another way to make people feel like they are outsiders in our opinion.

I will give you a tour of our place. It looks like tons of fun, but it's not. BOL!

When you enter our park, they have a drive-by museum.  It has tractors, an old house, wagon, etc.  I don't know how many people actually come to see it. The original owner was very interested in history, so he wanted the museum.

Tractors and an old gas pump.

This is where kids can mine.

The office.

Course for remote control cars.

Jumping mat - it isn't aired up here.  It is only aired up for a few hours on Saturdays.

It looks like kids would love it here, but the jump pad, mining and remote control car course are only open for a few hours on Saturdays.  What is up with that?  The pool doesn't open until noon each day. I have heard parents complain about activities having limited hours.

Some nights, there are outdoor movies.  The people who live here all have golf carts, so they line up their carts up like they are at a drive-in.  It is funny to see.  We just walk past because it is an outdoor gathering and dogs are not allowed.  On Friday nights, a DJ plays music.  Sometimes people dance.  Mom and I just walk by because dogs are not allowed.  BOL!

I sat out for a little while last week, but the bugs were bad.

This is our view.
It really isn't a bad place.  No one bothers us.  BOL!   We have a ton of places to walk.  Mom normally lets me choose the route.

We shouldn't complain because there are worse things than being bored.  We are in a safe place and that is important.
