Thursday 9-13 Eau Galle Campground

Enjoy yourself while camping

We woke up to sunshine. We had a very comfortable night sleeping we didn't have to use either the air conditioner or heater. We heard a few trains going down the tracks but they didn't keep us awake.

After breakfast and getting the Minnie ready we were back on the road. Our next destination was 95 miles away. On the way we stopped to fill the Minnie up with gas. There was a Dunkin Donuts there so I walked over to buy a few donuts. 

Our destination was Eau Galle Campground, which is run by the Corps of Engineer. It is located on a 150-acre lake. The lake is surrounded by four day-use areas, a beach, two boat launches, a fishing pier, a campground and several miles of hiking and equestrian trails. There is also an equestrian campground.

We arrived about 10:30, the camp host met us at the gate and said there were limited sites available. He got the list and told us which ones were available. This campground is located 50 miles east of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St Paul) and 40 miles west of Eau Claire, Wisconsin so it fills up on the weekends. The campground has sites with electric and others without electric. We chose a powered site that we liked. The sites are very pretty with a lot of trees which gives you privacy, They also have a fire ring and picnic table. The campground has water bottle filling stations, bathrooms with showers and hiking trails. There is a learning building and playground for the kids. I tried one of the swings out but couldn't figure out how it worked. It was a round disk with handles on it and chained to the ground. You can't really swing on it.

After setting up the Minnie we walked to the pay station and paid for the night.

During the day we walked around the campground a couple of times. It is a gorgeous campground with a lot of trees. Because of all the leaves laying in the road and around the campground it looked like fall. We walked around about a half hour each time. After the second walk I walked around another half hour to get my steps in. The walks were very peaceful.
