Still looking to kill time and let the weather warm a bit more before heading farther north, I moved from the state park to the Corps of Army Engineers Sandy Creek Campground, just six miles away by road, but only half a mile away as the crow flies. You can see the State Park beach across the lake from my new campsite at Sandy Creek.

I was blessed with a couple perfectly nice days of weather while staying here and made a couple more forays out into the surrounding country exploring but still did not come up with anything to shoot.

This is a very nice COE campground with long level sites, mostly shaded, but there are a few that are in the open enough to allow for satellite reception, my lakefront campsite being one of them. Fairly good Verizon signal here. All sites have water and electric with a covered picnic table on a separate concrete slab and there is a dump station in the campground. A real bargain at $20 a night and we seniors get 50% off of that. Pretty hard to beat $10 a night lakefront camping.

Tomorrow I travel north almost 400 miles to another COE campground on the Arkansas River near Ozark, Arkansas. Stay tuned.

Thank you for shopping Amazon from my site!

  1. Nice campsite! The COE campgrounds are a great deal for sure!

    I was at Organ Pipe Cactus NM last week. There has been virtually no rainfall there and nothing is blooming. The highlight of my visit though was seeing a family group of 4 Harris hawks. They were not too far from the road. I sat and watched them for about 45 minutes. So cool!

    Safe travels!

    1. I’ve seen film on Harris Hawks hunting as a family group, wish I could someday encounter that behavior in the wild. I only managed a few glimpses pf solitary Harris Hawks this winter during my time in south Texas.

  2. Hope you got away before the wind storms in East Texas on 3/10 or 3/11. There were reports of trees being knocked down and people injured. Not real sure just where in East Texas the storms were. May not have happened where you were camped.
    Safe travels,
