Who knew 95% of the RV campgrounds in the Northeast close on the 15th of October? We’ve actually been challenged with finding good spots this past week. Niagara Falls was no problem, accept even the KOA’s wanted $100.00 per night! Now that’s enough to ruin a good time! I managed to find the Niagara Falls RV Park, which was around seven miles from the falls, and had everything we needed for $55.00 per night.
This afternoon, as we neared Bangor, Maine, we couldn’t find zip. Everything closed yesterday. Finally, I called a park, which is near a lake and a little remote. I got a recording that said, “Your call is very important to us and we’ll call you back,” (instead of) “We are closed for the season.”
While we waited for them to call us right back, we decided… or rather I decided, we should go ahead and drive out there. I got worried when we turned onto a very bumpy road and after driving a couple of miles, pulled into what looked like a nice, but desserted boy scout camp. A guy came walking out of the office to tell us they closed September 30th. He must have seen my panicked look, because he said, “If you want to pull into a spot and you don’t need any services, I’ll show you to a nice one.”
We have our generator, and fresh, grey, and black water storage tanks, so we…I mean I, decided we should go for it. The place is full of motor homes, but there is no one in them. The owners spend the summers here, then winterize their RV’s and let them sit here empty until spring.
The guy, Tim, who let us stay here, said, “Feel free to walk all over with your dogs. There’s no one else here. “Then he said, “Personally, I think it’s kind of creepy… but the sunset is beautiful!”
After we checked it all out, we let the dogs run all over without a leash. Cyndie went up to everybody’s door. She couldn’t figure out where all the people were.
Kip was able to get several TV channels with just the antenna and is happily watching the Cowboy game.
We had another great day on the road. At my friend, Nancy’s suggestion, we stopped and walked through a couple of the old cemeteries that dated back to the Revolutionary War days.
Here are some shots taken from SeeYa’s windows. I think they’re better than yesterdays.
So, here we are at the Pushaw Lake Campground…I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars…Thanks Tim!
