July 23 RUDE CAMP HOST
WE HAVE CAMPED AT turquoise Lake {Molly Brown] for years Never have we met such a rude camp host. Every camp site had a story. it was almost funny watching each new family arrive seeing him track them down. threatened a 79 year old woman for tuning the wrong way on the road even though she pulled over right away. Threatened to make her leave the park, left her in tears. maybe the roads need better markings, watched him chase many cars for the same offense. when someone had a hammock on tree, he stopped, didnt say a word handed them a paper told them to read the highlighted section.. previous camp host always made us feel welcome, would stop by to talk
April 30 great senior pics by ash-nicole
good camp sites, and quiet. nice mountain stream and good fishing at the lake...the little town by the lake is nice and very hospitable!
