When the kids & I arrived from Utah, our first "home" was Wilderness RV Park. The owner was nice, & he didn't charge the offensive "kid tax." The pool was the highlight of our stay here, for sure. Not only was it useful for keeping the kids happy, I even taught Genna how to swim!! Yay!! (And thank you, Miss Jayne, for faithfully teaching our big girls to swim...your methods of instruction do indeed work!)
What a huge change of pace from our time in suburbia! The kids & I were unprepared really for how far away we were from town. It seems that this area is a good place to go when you just want to get away from it all and mostly just disappear. I can't say that the other camper/residents at the campground were very welcoming or friendly. Many avoided eye contact & ignored our presence while others would be friendly once & then never again...it was a bit strange, honestly. There were other kids in the campground, but they didn't really want anything to do with our kids. But...there was a pool which helped wear the kids out & cooled us off on hot, humid summer days.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Derailed Diner which was at our exit off of I-10. It's definitely worth the stop for the interest factor.
