Camper cabins

July 27, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
On my Facebook page Thursday I put my status as “really looking forward to going camping this weekend” as Ross and I were planning on going to one of the state parks for Friday and Saturday. Three of my Facebook friends liked my status. My cousin Ann pipes in with I must have an air mattress or a cot if I’m “really” looking forward to going camping. Since neither Ross or I have a tent and we weren’t really sure we wanted to yet invest in a tent, we reserved one of the camper cabins that is available in several of the state parks.

We looked around online and weren’t really finding too many available three days before we wanted to go. There was Big Bog which is way up north, about 7 hours away, which had a camper cabin available for two nights. I didn’t want to drive that far. Then there was Glacial Lakes State Park, which had a cabin for Friday night only. And the park was only an hour and a half from Ross’ house, so we went there.

It turned out to be a beautiful weekend. The cabin was nice as well. The cabins are relatively new, so it has that “new wood” scent. The one we stayed in can fit six. It also had a picnic table indoors and one outdoors, as well as electricity and a celing fan. Of course, we still had to head up the hill to go to the bathroom and the showers were on the other side of where we were staying (plus it was being treated for bacteria).

Another Facebook friend of mine said that “it wasn’t really camping” jokingly when I said I was staying in a cabin. But then she commented after I came back and said I survived Friday and Saturday at Glacial Lakes, that it’s a nice park, except for the flies. Yep, I’ll agree with that one. Those flies drove me crazy on Friday evening’s hike. But they weren’t around during Saturday’s walk around Kettle and Baby Lakes. Guess they don’t like wind.
