An August 2002 trip
to Milwaukee by camera-gal
Quote: What a long strange trip it was to travel so far to see one of the legendary bands of the century.
As far as how this one rates, I wouldn't stay here again. I much prefer state campgrounds to private ones. This one being a private one, there was not much security. Things got a little out of hand on Saturday night. It could have been because there was a Grateful Dead show this weekend. We could distinctly hear a couple of guys pounding each other over a girl. I couldn't stand to listen to the profanities or the sound of violence. The sherrif had to come and give them a ticket. They quieted down after that.
Overall the place was kind of scuzzy. I enjoyed the rustic campsite with all the pine trees, but it wasn't worth putting up the trash who lived here.
Oh, and it cost us over $30 to camp! We had no water or electricity. You could stay at a state campsite for a third of that. We thought that it might have been better if we spent a little extra and stayed in a hotel.
