Okay, perhaps we should have figured this out on our own sooner than this, but guess what… most of the campgrounds in the northeast are closed after Columbus Day! This may seem like a “no-brainer” to most of you, but to us (coming from Texas where most campgrounds are open all year long) this was a bit of a surprise considering how gorgeous the fall colors are. Where do RVing tourists stay that are out to see the splendor of the northeastern autumn? Obviously not in the local campgrounds!

As it happens we are spending the night in what used to be a campground and will someday be a campground again. Willie and I stopped here (at the Indian Ridge Campsites in Leeds, NY) this evening in hopes that the campground was still open. We found the new owner working on clearing trees and rocks and he explained to us that he just bought this campground and it had not been open for at least a year Currently this densely forested park is in a shambles. Although he does not have water or electricity running the owner did offer to let us dry camp for the night on his property. We gratefully accepted his kind offer as we did not get a very good night of sleep last night in the noisy rest area and need a quiet place to sleep before continuing our trek south. (Poor Blayde sat up nearly all night last night looking at the back doors “keeping guard” despite us trying to convince him to rest and our repeated assurances that those noisy trucks and cars are allowed to be out there driving up and down the road all night. I guess he wanted to be sure.) Although there are presently no amenities here at Indian Ridge Campsites it looks like, once rebuilt and repaired, this will be a lovely location for visitors coming here to enjoy the beautiful Catskills. As for tonight it is very dark and very quiet here in the woods!

Who knows where we will be tomorrow night… hopefully in an RV park with a hot shower, empty holding tanks and full water tanks! We will see…

Happy Travels, Rebecca
