On to Suzanne's house
Monday, August 2, 2009
Drove to Douglas, WY and spent the night in the City campground. It’s a very well maintained facility right on the North Platte River. By dark, there were six RV’s here. It’s just off of I-25 so it’s an easy overnight stop. All that plus it’s free. Has a water fill and a dump station.
Did grocery shopping on the way to Fort Collins. Camped along the Poudre River in the Cache de Poudre Recreation Area. Stayed at the Stove Prairie Forest Service campground. Our site is right along the river. There are nine sites and by late afternoon, the campground was full. When we got there about 2:00, there were two sites available. On Wednesday night the campground host came around. He said all camp sites along the river were full for the weekend and there are only a few sites available for tonight or Thursday. On Wednesday, one site in the campground was occupied by a “reservation” tent.
We moved on to the Horse Tooth Reservoir near Fort Collins. We were able to get a site for tonight. Tomorrow, Friday, is a “maybe”. The host said this is a very popular campground for Ft. Collins/Loveland Residents. It’s only 15 to 30 minutes away. During the summer it fills every weekend. Like a lot of the other reservoirs we’ve camped on, the shoreline tends to be mud. There is another Australian Shepherd in a campsite near us. We let the dogs off their leash near the water and they just ran & ran.
We drove to Suzanne’s house in Longmont, CO. Arrived mid-morning.
