Camping at Mark Twain Lake Corp of Engineers Camp Ground

My wife & I went to Indian Creek campground at Mark Twain Lake Corp of Engineers Recreation Area in MO this past week. Spent Monday & Tuesday night. Very nice cg with options of full hookup or just electric. Hot clean showers & nice size camp spots with fire ring & picnic table in a gravel area with paved parking for the RV. However we were in a 2 man tent.
If you have a boat , there apears to be great fishing, we took our kayaks and bicycles. We don't fish, but enjoy being out on the lake.
We did see a Bald Eagle while out on the lake. This is the closest I have ever been to an eagle in the wild. A very beautiful bird.
We don't usually cook, we tend to eat out. Monroe City is the closest town. Not much of a choice of restaurants, we ate at Pizza Hut both nights. The food & service were good, but we should have taken food with us on this trip.
Always seems a little wierd when camping in a tent & we have this big beautiful RV siiting in a camp ground 2 hrs down the road.

It's neat you got the see the eagle. I assume they're rare in that part of the world. We're a bit spoiled here in Anacortes, there are about 15 nesting pairs that are here all the time, two pairs within a quarter-mile of our house.

We also get a massive influx (3 or 4 hundred of them) into the Skagit River valley around Christmas time where they come to feed on the salmon run up river. That's about 35 miles from home.

That must be a really cool site to see all those eagles in one area. We see a few around but never up close. Not sure how rare it is for NE Missouri, but its pretty rare for us. It made my day on a lake that didn't seem to have much going on in the area we were at. We are seeing or hearing of sightings more in the past 10 years than I can ever remember.
