It rained last night but this morning the sun is trying to come out.  Took a walk around our section (Camping Area One) of the park this morning and I really like site 55.   There are no sites on the back end and a street separates the other sides of this site, so it is very private.  This campground has 87 sites.

It is next to the boat launch which would be easy access for Xi Shi to walk down the ramp and wade in the water. 

The area has a park bench, small pier, telescope for overlooking the lake, and a fish cleaning room.

I was pleased to find that this park has a sandy beach which is located in the day use area at the other end of the park from where I am.  I'll ride by it tomorrow on my way out.  I'll also check out Camping Area One as it appears - by looking at the map - that it provides more space between sites but I can't tell if it is near the lake.

According to their website, the freshwater lake was lavishly stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish, channel catfish, black crappie, striped bass, chain pickerel, bream, and white perch.  Each year Lake Claiborne State Park attracts more than 55,000 visitors, most within a 50-mile radius.

She rode down a steep decline in her motor chair to go fishing.

Nice pontoon boat.

Peace Rock

We're leaving in the morning.
