Bardwell Lake Corp of Engineers Parks


I must apologize for not posting more often on this blog.  Thank you to all who tried to keep up with Angel and me.  I really do appreciate it.  Angel has been doing just fine.  She and I do get into a rut, since we really don't do too much.  I find that there isn't too much that I actually do except workamp and do watercolors.  I will try to be more diligent in keeping you all up to date.

So this post will be about wonkamping for the US Army Corp of Engineers and their parks where I am currently staying.  My MH is parked at Love Park.  It is the closest park to the Project Office where I work.  I work Monday thru Friday, 4 hours per day for my site and full hook ups. This the first time in 7 years that I have had weekends off, YEA!!!!

If anyone is interested in volunteering, they do have positions open for Camp Hosts and Maintenance.  Couples and singles are welcome.

On to the some pictures and comments about the various parks.

High View Park also has a Group Shelter which accommodates 50 people and a Boat Ramp.  I forgot to get pictures.

Writing this particular post has helped me get familiar with the different parks that I have to answer questions about when people call the office.  So this is what my job entails.  I find it interesting and I enjoy helping those interested in what the corp offers.

I hope that you all found it a little bit interesting and maybe consider checking out your local USACE parks.

Thanks for visiting 

I'm so glad when Mom gets home.
