5-11 & 12-16
After Roger transmitted from Tuskegee Institute and Tuskegee Airman National Park sites, we drove to Lake Martin. This is our first time at this campground. Since it was almost 8 pm when we backed into our campsite, we fixed dinner and went to bed. The next morning we woke to see that we had selected a beautiful site on the lake. After breakfast we rode our bikes around the campground. It is one of the prettiest we have ever seen and it is huge! There are over 600 sites scattered across six peninsulas so it doesn’t seem crowded.
There are separate picnic areas for day use and a “silo” at the end of one of the points which has an observation area that looks out over the lake. With a fishing pier and a marina that rents various sized boats, it’s a great place for multiple types of recreation. There are even a few cabins for those people who love nature but don’t have personal rv’s. We are certainly glad we found it before the summer season is in full swing.
