I have a knack for finding the strangest campsites.
But it always ends up being a good time.
This particular site was Kate’s Fish Camp - which is actually someone’s backyard. Granted, it’s a very large piece of land right next to a lake, but nonetheless, a back yard.
Complete with a stage and a string of lights, it was really unlike any other “campground” I’ve been to. Only two other campers were at Kate’s Camp and we didn’t talk much. I can’t imagine they get too many people coming through.
The bathroom was attached to their house, and the shower was outside, which the homeowner was very proud of as he had built it himself.
We also found a string of patriotic red, white and blue lights - which I can only imagine were used for some Fourth of July party many moons ago.
We enjoyed some beers, relaxed in the hammock, told age-old stories and snuggled by the camp fire.
It’s really nice to get away from it all - even if it means camping in someone’s backyard.
