Our stop in Midland, Georgia was precipitated by the use of Passport America. We had a mostly pleasant drive (except Columbus) through quiet State highways. We decided to stop at Lake Pines RV and Campground for some much-needed rest. The campground overall is very pleasant. It is fairly clean, however the sites are very close together. We were in sight 15 a corner site in the back of the campground. We found this much to our liking as there was very little traffic and the corner allowed us some privacy.
Due to the privacy and the temperate mornings we decided to stay more than one night. On our second day the temperatures were so comfortable we decided to cook out all day making our famous roast potatoes and carrots in the Dutch oven over a fire. Captain Jim got out the Panda and proceeded to do laundry in our little bathroom while we cooked the roast. He really enjoys using his Little Panda. All was going well until late in the evening when we decided to go for a swim and to dry clothes. Kaelin and I settled at the pool and Jim brought wet clothes to put in the dryer only to find out the dryers weren’t working. A woman swimming in the pool offered advice in going to a local laundromat. Captain Jim loaded up Bertha and headed towards said laundromat. The laundromat was clean and got the laundry done. Unfortunately, this and some very rude people at the laundromat did put a damper on the evening, but that’s life. Overall, the campground was okay.
I give the campground a 3.5. I could have done better if it had kept up with the laundromat, cleaned the pool better and wasn’t so close in space. It’s more of a city RV park rather than country.
Captain Jim agrees with my assessment. He did like site 15.
