The campground sits on a hilltop and as I wrote this in early April many if not most sites have views through the trees in one or more directions. Once the trees fill out with the new leaves leaves of spring (they were still bare when I was there) those views will likely disappear--the campground is in a forest of deciduous trees.
Just a mile from the campground is the gravesite of and memorial to Meriwether Lewis of the famed Lewis and Clark Expedition also known as the Corps of Discovery. After that famed expedition, as Governor of the Louisiana Territory, Lewis traveled the Old Trace on his way to Washington D.C. and it is within a few steps of his gravesite that he met his untimely death by gunshot. It appears uncertain whether it was murder or suicide.
That which appears above are brief excerpts from the full report on my free blog
which includes much more info about the campground, area history and a number of additional photos. Many other campgrounds are reviewed on my blog along with boondocking sites, great photography, photo tips, travel reports and interviews with people I've met while full-timing over the past year. It's all red. If you like it look for the Follow Russ text entry field and type in you email address to receive free email notices when I post something new,
