Camping at Cuivre River State Park {RV’ing}


Even though this state park is only 40 minutes from our home, we knew the site we wanted, and it allowed us to spend all our time Monday through Wednesday with camping (instead of driving) and trying out all the new stuff on the RV. AND, we went at a time when it would be isolated and serene. That’s us, way down at the end site!


First evening, we fired up the new hibachi grill, perfect for just the two of us. Fried potatoes/onion, a camping necessity, worked great in the electric skillet.


It was actually unseasonably hot, so we appreciated the air conditioner.


Cooled off enough to enjoy the evening fire! Toasted marshmallows, late evening, while listening to the Cardinals game.


Even though the temperatures did not feel like autumn, the sound of the acorns hitting the RV reminded us that it is fall!


We walked a lot, making several trips around the [empty] campground. Not a lot of color in the leaves yet, but the persimmons and the leaves on the sassafras tree provided a welcome touch of autumn color.


The most necessary of all necessities—good coffee. To ensure that, we travel with our single-serve Keurig.

By the time we broke camp, we had pretty much figured out all the systems and feel reasonably confident that we know what we’re doing with our new unit.

Easy-peasy to drive home, unload and be back to “normal” in an hour and fifteen minutes! Ready for the next trip—next up, a road trip through part of our state to see the fall foliage (what little there may be this year!).
