When we decided to go camping for Memorial Day weekend, I didn’t think about everyone else who had the same idea. The campgrounds near home were full, so hubby gave me a 5 hour drive limit.
What I found was a KOA in Casey, Illinois. Casey – a town of fewer than 5,000 people. Casey – known for its world’s largest items.
The KOA in Casey is a small to medium operation with a stocked lake. A lake to fish in had been my husband’s one requirement. He didn’t care where we would be as long as he could go fishing.
The individual campsites were level and shaded, and the lake was across the gravel campground road and past one row of campers. In other words, we could see the lake from our campsite.
Although it was Memorial Day weekend, the campground wasn’t full.
It felt good to be cooking outside again on an open fire and eating meals at a picnic table.
The simple rowboats were rentable for the day at $12.00 from sun up to sun down. Hubby was ecstatic and even took one of our campground neighbor’s boys out on the lake to fish.
