First camping night in the new trailer.

We drove from our home in Gainesville, Florida up to Columbus, Georgia to pick up our new travel trailer.  A new Heartland Edge that we found at the Columbus RV Center. Excited about our new purchase, we wanted to find a campground somewhere half way back to home so we could spend the night and get to know our camper. We eventually found a site at the East Lake Campground on Lake Seminole. The was a very nice, clean park with well spaced sites. Most sites were very open (few trees) and many right on the lake.

Our new camper!

We did do a few very short hikes at this campground. There were not many hiking opportunities, but we did find a few to take advantage of. There was one short hike off of the campground loop furthest away from the water. Also, you can make your way over to the dam built to create Lake Seminole.

Looking back towards the campground from the dam. The water in the lake was somewhat weed choked and the warm lake water caused things to be very buggy in spots.
