We Chose Wisely

For the past three years, we've gone to the Shad Landing area of Pocomoke River State Park for our annual camping trip. We love it and I'm sure we'll return, but this year, we decided to branch out and do a little exploring.

After some debate, we chose Rocky Gap State Park near Cumberland, Maryland. We've visited the park twice and camped overnight once.  So, we knew, that like Shad Landing, it has wonderful staff, an interactive nature center and clean facilities. As a mom with two boys, I also liked that the camp loops have family bathrooms. But the biggest draw was the lake.

No pool fees, no weird hours - just swimming from dawn to dusk.

Our original expedition motto was "Ice Cream Every Day!" It quickly became "Swim in the Crystal Clear Wonderful Mountain Lake Every Day!"

And we did.
