Goodbye Peace River.

We have had our two weeks at Peace River. It's name is so in tune with the atmosphere. One of the most peaceful campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Our site had a lot to do with that, because we were right on the river and we spent many hours just sitting in our recliners, reading and watching the water flowing gently past. The bird life was wonderful, and no, we did not see any gators or turtles. At night we heard lots of animal noise. It took us a few nights to figure out what we were hearing, and after listening to some sound bytes on the Internet we realized that we were hearing families of raccoons.

What did we think of Peace River? Loved it with some reservation. Some of the sites, especially down in the overflow area have very low voltage on the electric pedestals. Our first site was in the 70 to 80 Volts range so we moved a few sites over. There is not a whole lot of stuff to see in the area unless you travel a fair distance. We wished we had a canoe so that we could explore the river a bit more. Some people go fossiling in the river, but that really does not appeal to me.

The pool is nice and heated, but it is small. The hot tub is also small. The laundry is good with about6 washers and 6 dryers. Something that I saw, which I have not seen at any other campground laundry was a pay station where you are able to use a credit card to pay instead of having to get a handful of quarters. Other activities are 2 pickle ball courts, shuffle board, horseshoes and various ongoing activities such as poker, and other card games. There is also line dancing and once a week ice cream social.

There is fast free wifi in the clubhouse and pool tables, book swap and a large TV.

Would we go back? Absolutely.

Here are a few random photos.
