We made it safely to Martin Creek Lake State Park in the early afternoon. It appears that we are one of two occupied campsites in the whole park. The OFM Teams are in site 72 and it is a nice site level side to side.
The campsites are rather short. The rear of the Castle is sticking over the car stop. The Castle was backed up until the tire hit the car stop then pulled forward a few inches. The Truck as you can see in this campsite picture is barely out of the road.
This is a new state park to the Teams. It turns out to be very nice. The lake is a cooling lake for a power plant on the other side of the lake from the park. Power plant lakes are usually good fishing lakes. This one also looks like a good place to use a yak.In front of one of the restrooms is a nice unusual bench made form a log.
A very long walk was taken to gather in what the park has to offer. The Teams could easily enjoy three days here. The lake is down about six feet it appears but there is still plenty of water for the swimmers to enjoy at the beach.
The fishing pier is short but likely good for families to catch small fish by the dozens. The pier apparently had a pile of visitors over the weekend. In the back ground you can see the power plant.
Included in the fun is an island that is accessed by a foot bridge. The island allows for primitive tent camping. Several folks were over on the island wade fishing.
The Visiting Team had a great time talking to the remaining visitors. The heat here is strong but the pine trees help with a lot of shade. Shade on a hot day is a definite assist in trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
