Up a Creek

We completed our first camp at Cedar Creek (COE) Park along the shores of Old Hickory Lake, Mt. Juliet, TN.

Arriving after Dark on Friday we found the park and access very easy. The sites are large, well spaced and most have at least a lake view. All sites have 50 amp power and water. Largest rig seen was about 42 Motor home.

As per the pic the boat travel was part of the plan. The park has a boat ramp, sandy beach and two small bays to tour. A word to the wise. They close the gates to the park at 10 pm., however, arriving after 10 pm you can pull the pin at the gate and enter. Seems to be a slight plan to deter cruising the campground by those not registered. However, could be a problem should one spend a bit of time at the nearby marina bar and try to drive back.

We had a new experience on this trip. After launching the Kayaks a few times prior, we tried our Dogs, Bailey and Bella in the Kayaks. What a treat. They both did well. Bailey is a bit heavy at 40 lbs. and the paddling was more work. I may attempt letting her swim and tow the boat. She does have a life jacket after all. Bella was quick at home. Denise accompanied Bella. Now, Bailey has a desire for better wine and I had to curb her sipping due to her driving. She attempted to exist the boat on every leaf and twig, rocking the boat.

A moon lite evening cruising the lake with Denise and two dogs. Where can you beat it? We are enjoying the boats along with dogs as we extend our camping. Only about 10 days prior to our 4,000 mile journey to Yellowstone and Tetons. That should lead to more posts for the host of followers on the Rubber Rats.

I am currently parked in the lot of Camping World for small repairs prior to western trip. At least things are breaking now and hopefully not in the Badlands of South Dakota. We will enter the Badlands on the first day of the Sturgis Bike Rally so we should have many new and "interesting" pics for all.
