This past Saturday when we arrived, my first thought was “What was I thinking? Why did Amanda like this place so much?!!” The main camping area isn’t very scenic and was pretty crowded.
I went back to her post and read that we needed to look for a dirt road near the boat ramp. For those of you coming after us, if you turn left at the boat ramp, you’ll see the sign for primitive camping. The sign is off to the side and its lack of visibility is probably why we’re camping alone.
For me, reading other people’s blog posts is an important part of researching a campground, though it can be hard to remember what I read where. That’s why we have the blog post feature on Campendium. If you’ve blogged about a campground please share it with us!
Thanks Amanda for reporting on the primitive camping at Caballo Lake, I bet most people who camp here don’t even realize it’s an option.
Dinner Last Night:
Baked Orzo in Easy Cream Sauce. I didn’t have broccoli on hand, but did have some spinach and tomatoes, so rather than make a salad, I served the pasta on a bed of raw spinach and topped with chopped tomatoes. It was cool how the sauce for this recipe thickened in the oven. Tasty too.
