Card Creek Campground

2016 Out West, Kansas, Road Trip


Happy Windsday! Last night we stayed at Card Creek Campground on Elk City Lake near Independence, Kansas. It’s an Army Corps of Engineers site. When we arrived yesterday afternoon we noted that some of the waterfront sites were flooded but fellow campers told us the waters were receding. We chose a campsite on slightly higher ground and proceeded to enjoy a most pleasant evening. The weather couldn’t be nicer. Not so true after dark though. In the middle of the night we were awakened by rain and then hail then lightning then thunder then all but simultaneous lightning and thunder. After surviving that we’re grateful for this morning’s cloudy blustery weather but taking the precaution of securing the T@B kitchen hatch so that it doesn’t get caught in a powerful wind gust and do damage. What a first impression of Kansas!

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
