The campground where Ron and I spent some of our time this summer is a friendly place! There are over 200 "seasonals" and I'm pretty sure 99% of the campers are NOT retired, so, the weekend is their prime time. The 1% of us who are retired can choose any day of the week and we have the 60 acres of riverfront all to ourselves.
There are as many kinds of trailers as there are kinds of people at RiverView RV Park and Marina. Some are here to be outside as much as possible and have a small abode.
The birkenstock clad couple of this tiny trailer have a sweet dashound-the perfect size pet for their home away from home.
A few even choose "glamping" as evidenced by the three tents featured above!
Riverview offers fishing access, directly from the marina into Vermilion River which then empties into Lake Erie. For you skeptics, there is plenty of perch, walleye, trout, and catfish, not to mention some snapping turtles and such. If you own a boat you can have your trailer site along the marina.
Only one ultra cool vintage Airstream is here-yeah, my BFF, Paulette, and her husband, Bob, are parked adjacent to our "park model" trailer. Everyone stops to gaze at this refinished beauty. In fact, if someone inquired what site we have, I just say we are next to the shiny bullet and they know exactly where we "live."
Very sophisticated decor abounds. Having a deck and getting to landscape around it is one of the many wonderful extras here. Paulette and I take a walk at least twice a day to admire the joyful displays.
One couple runs a farm during the week and we all get to enjoy the proceeds-this weekend we bought homemade banana bread, sweet relish, peach jam, and picked up some fresh eggs. Talk about a camp store-what could possibly be better???
Every other week, there is a competitive BINGO game in the pavilion. We're talking serious money, prizes, and potluck. I joined the group this weekend. My brain was mush after 3 hours concentrating on the diamond, four corners, straight bingo, double bingo, and so on. I'm not kidding, I stumbled back to our trailer and slept a record 14 hours! I think you have to build up slowly to play with this group!
This is our view of the river. It is where we sit and watch the waterfowl glide by. Or, the boaters.
The park closes early, by Ohio fall weather standards, and so, we have returned to our back porch in Sandusky to watch the leaves change colors.
