Land Between The Lakes

This was the camper shake-down cruise. Spring break and we were ready to roll with a new camper and a bunch of camper paraphernalia to try out. Definitely an upgrade from tent camping!

We camped 4 nights at Piney Campground, on the Tennessee portion of the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Campground details:

The area map below also marks Cypress Springs Resort where we rented a pontoon to spend a day on Kentucky Lake.

A rainy day gave us an excuse for a day trip. Patti's 1880's Settlement -- great food -- and Paris, TN both were fun to see!

The visitor's center staff discouraged us from hiking on the many trails in Land Between the Lakes because it was turkey hunting season, so we found a trail at Ft. Donelson National Battlefield (On the Cumberland River). See more at:
