A Slight Change in Early Camping Plans

Good friends recently found out, to their disappointment, that their son would need to attend summer school for one middle-school class. Since they both work, they wondered if I could pick him up at 11:00 a.m. each morning and give him a lift home for three weeks in June (they both work full-time). Of course, I said “sure”—I can relate since I spent a few weeks re-enjoying Chemistry class one summer during my high school days! 🙂

However, my plans to begin camping 5 hours away from home during a couple of those weeks would need to be put on hold, obviously. Instead, I’ve been looking for a campground much closer to home so I could still camp and pick him up from school. I went to investigate Bertha Brock Park near Ionia today. I think it will be a great substitute for one or two outings.


It’s just 40 miles from home, so in a couple hours I’d have my “UBER” duties completed daily. It’s a small county park, just 20 rustic sites, each with a fire ring and picnic table. Just the kind of camp I’m looking for.

The sites are large and have plenty of wooded area between them. Just how I like things. I found some sites not suitable for a tent, not level at all, but I’ll still have at least ten of the sites to choose from.

Now that the weather is warming up, I hope to be out in the woods in a couple weeks!
