This past week we have had rapid weather changes here. First sunny and hot, then to rain and wind... sunny and windy to flash floods, heavy rain and wind... unbelieable the damage the rain and wind can cause. We first camped at Cumberland head State park and it went well, windy but we loved the beach side view and playing in the sand with the kids. (needs some extra TLC in the cleanliness of the bath houses) Then tuesday night was heavy rainfall and wind... the Boler
was rocking and held well even with the awning
low. We packed up Wednesday and headed to Blue Haven Campground (a more seasonal campground with a long list of activities for families, clean and friendly) We arrived after lunch... (40 mins from last campground) On our way in we noticed alot of trucks, tractors... police.. Within 5 miles of arrival we saw the brook... which looked more like a large rapid flowing river. Then a car upside down in the water... flooded properties... many trees down...
We were welcomed quickly with a change of site due to the roads being eroded to the point of being impassable for vehicles. The new site was fine, safe was the key word for that day. A cement deck and wooded back end with a grassy side as well. We Parked the Boler
and I left my husband to level up as I took the kids for a walk. The roads were eroded and trailers on their sides, one in the brook.... a disaster zone to say the least. I felt sad for the seasonals who were trying to salvage their properties...... The crew of the campground was amazing.. they all worked so hard to complete the roads and put the trailers onto their spots again. electricity and sewage was hooked up in less than a day. Now they begin to start the clean up of the lake, decks, lawn chairs, swings...etc to be hauled out. I am so impressed with the quality of this campground and how well they took care of their seasonals and new campers.
5 stars for Blue Haven!!!!!!!!!
We leave in a few days, will be coming back soon! (sent to you as I sit and watch the rain and enjoy the WIFI connection here)
