We picked an excellent time to visit. Upon arrival, only 3 other RVs were in the Council Bluff campground where we would spend the next 3 nights (see map). In all, there are 20 campsites in this campground. Before leaving Fredericksburg, we used Google Earth to view the campground in order to find the best campsites. So, when we arrived at the park, we had a short list of 3 sites were were interested in. As luck would have it, our top site was occupied; it would turn out that that site (number 78) was, indeed, the best site, at least for this time of year. Instead, we opted for site 88, which had good shade from Black Jack Oaks.

I took a lengthy bike ride around the lake, snapping pictures of whatever interested me. Those pictures will be in the next, and final installment, for this trip.
