Campground Host Experiences
We are taking a little vacation from workamping again this week. We have cleaned all we can here at the park and have to wait until the flood waters have receded enough to do some more and the many miles of trails to dry up some more before the maintenance crew can get out there …
Cleaning up around your park after any storm can be time-consuming and back-breaking kind of work but all of our public land areas really appreciate the help of their volunteers.

We have had some nice rain, stormy rain and some downright mean rain over the last couple of months in the North Florida area.

We still open and close the entrance gates Tuesday through Sunday. Mondays we get to sleep late.
We are half way through our stay at Alligator Lake Park here in Lake City, Florida.

So far, we haven’t been able to save any money towards the new RV motor but we have been building up our craft items we have for sale.
