Today was opening day here at Blanton Creek Park. Judy and I have been busy getting the office ready and maintenance crew were busy finishing a few projects including painting the comfort station, trimming over-hanging branches, and repairing the broken water line.
Judy and I reported to the office this AM at 6:30 and there was a line at the gate waiting for the 7 AM opening. When I opened the gate I gave out numbers to the campers so that no one could cut in line. While Judy entered the reservations I took all the incoming phone calls of people calling for reservations. I took their numbers and we called them back in order after we had taken care of all the people in line. Most of the people were making reservations for the Easter weekend, it is also spring break for many of the area schools. We had taken care of the initial group by 8:30 but we remained busy taking phone reservations most of the afternoon.
Ready to kick-off the 2013 Season!
I was surprised with the number of campers that showed up to camp. This the earliest that the park has opened. I was glad that we had ten campers to check in. The weather is going to be pretty cold over the next few days. The camper accommodations ranges from a class “A” to two tent campers.
Some examples of our water front sites - Only $20.00!!
That’s all for now. Thanks for dropping by.
