Columbia Basin Herald: First camping trip reveals improved campground

From the bloggers at Columbia Basin Herald.

We prepared the 26-foot long Hideout travel trailer for travel last Sunday beginning at about noon. The wheels turned at 2 p.m. We were headed for Potholes State Park, Site 23, having made the reservations five months ago.

The trip was quick, after all, Site 23 is just 23 miles from our driveway. Check in time is 2:30. We arrived at 2:40 and were relaxing, after being completely set up and hooked up to everything, by 3:30.

There were several changes to the campground. The park was visited during last winter, so we knew changes were in progress, but we didn’t know the extent of the improvements.

The full-hookup portion of the state park consists of six circles, each containing 10 campsites. Last year the blacktop ended shortly after turning into the circle. This year the blacktop continued into the circle and completely around the circle.

The center part of the circle was fresh gravel, circled by the blacktop. This center area is used to park extra vehicles and boats. This is a great arrangement, as it keeps the blacktopped circle open as a driveway.
