The Place: Jordanelle State Park.
We all arrived around 6 on Friday night.
We set up our tents and gear right away and as soon as Nitsy arrived with the wood we got going on the fire. Which meant dinner! Tin Foil Dinners.
TOP TIP: Pre Cook your dinners, Potatoes and Ground beef are notorious for cooking unevenly in these tinfoil pouches. Also, when cooking outdoors for impatient toddlers it really cuts down on cooking time. ALSO, when you have a limited amount of time and firewood it is also really great.
This is the fire pit at our site. One of the many great things about camping at Jordanelle.
One night was more than enough for us. Although it might have felt like we got more for our time if we had stayed another night. Camping is such an involved process. Between the lack of sleep, all the food and gear you have to bring and the freezing cold night air, it was rough.
Still, we will go again next year. Once a year is about all I can do.
