Well, what a week, got run out of the camp ground yesterday ( June 1) because of rising water.  Area B had been closed because of rising water and water was at the picnic table bases.We were in area D and the lake had just reached the edge of the pavement as everyone was getting out. Suddenly a large white oak tree fell across the road blocking our exit.Luck my cuz's neighbor came down with a chainsaw and cut us a path through the  fallen tree. We were told that the entire campground would be closed by this morning, Sunday June 2.
The lake has risen 8.78 feet sense Thursday and was still rising, Corp said the lake would come up anther 3 feet before they started letting water out. Looks like the final pool will be about 589+ that will be 11 feet above normal pool of 578.
Not only did we have rising water but a black bear had invaded the campgrounds and had been seen forging around the bathhouse. AGF had set a trap for the bear, but as of yesterday no luck catching the rascal.
What a way to end my spring camping.
