Friday finally came, I got off work a couple of hours early and we hit the road. Kastle Kampground is in Marion, WI and we picked this campground because it is pretty close to equal distance from my parents. We headed east about 2.5 hours and my parents came about 2.5 hours south and a little west.
is the biggest campground I have ever seen or been to. There are just over 800 campsites and nearly 600 are permanent. It is open year round. There is nearly every kind of site you can get, full sun, full shade, big, small. The facilities (showers, bathroom, etc.) are not the best we have seen but they are passing. The owners were onsite and pleasant to work with. My brother, his wife and their 4 kids came in pretty late Friday night and there was no problems settling up the extra charges the following day.
Here we are pulling in, we had Site 60, a small non-permanent site loop close to the office and pool, hot tub and showers. Nice shade but the shade came from some pretty sappy pines:
Another shot after we are pulled in, my parents tent camper in the background:
Our campsite from the road. None of the non-permanent campsites around us got booked, so we had the entire corner of the inside loop to ourselves. And some very friendly permanent site folks on the outside of the loop.
Saturday for lunch, we broke in our new dutch oven. We have a very small round charcoal grill that we use when camping. The dutch oven fits perfectly inside:
Sherry wasn't real sure about the whole dutch oven thing, but her stuffed peppers turned out awesome! We also roasted some corn on the other charcoal grill and campfire. Reached post limit, pictures and post will continue....
