See what I mean? Isn’t it beautiful? They are doing major renovations to the campground on the other side of the reservoir and we took the chance to check it out. They have only completed the first loop (there are three loops), but what they have finished is gorgeous!!!!! IF and that is IF there were full hookup (and there aren’t) Big Meadows would be a five-star resort!
Just take a look at some of the campsites on the first loop.
New kiosk, old pay tube
Pretty site by the water
|This will be a popular site.|
Wood outlines the site
Left side pull-thru
|This site has the table up on the hill with steps|
Lots of beautiful wood back drops--what do you call them?-- in the back. Nicely graveled with new treated wood picnic tables and fire rings.
But then we saw these two brand new tables destroyed by a fallen tree during the winter….tables had never been used even once!!!!!
The second loop is going to be worked on come April, but Big Meadows won’t be opened till 2013, hopefully! Any one interested in coming to work with us up there in Big Meadows 2013 or 2014? Camphosts will have water and sewer and a gas allowance for your generator. There will be new restrooms, new water system and new water stations. I’m sure the campground will be full most of the time because it’s been closed since 2009 and everybody is excited about going back and seeing all the positive changes they are making.
Here are a couple more photos of the area. There’s a 2 mile trail around the reservoir, many longer hiking trails in the area, great trout fishing (they stock the pond weekly) and the 9,500 foot altitude makes for cool weather all summer.
Am I tempting you???????? If so contact me and we’ll talk.
Remember, you are loved.
