We borrowed the pop-up trailer from the base and headed upstate with the kids to a State Park on the SC/NC line. After a 7 hour drive, we made it to a VERY packed campground. We set up camp, and enjoyed exploring the two lakes, playgrounds, scenic trails, and the layout of the campground.
The next day we awoke and enjoyed a campfire breakfast and then headed inside when the rain, lightning, and thunder started. Little did we know that was to be a VERY interesting day, filled with lightening, thunder, rain, hail, more rain, and a tornado watch. (The counties around us actually had tornadoes hit down, but the campground was left untouched.)
The weekend was filled with abundant sunshine and we had a great time participating in the campground's egg hunt, a nature walk, fishing, riding on a paddle boat, feeding the geese, and relaxing.
Our last two days we spent inside the trailer listening to the rain, which was disappointing, but still fun.
All in all, we had a great trip and are already searching for our next camping adventure!
