First Trip With Our New 5th Wheel – Elk Neck State Park, North East, MD

Six days after getting our new 5th Wheel, we took a trip to one of our favorite places – Elk Neck State Park.

Cello and Hooch had their travel buddies, Olaf and Hulk to keep them company on our ride.

We have always stayed in the North East Loop of the campground, but this was the first time we have stayed on this campsite.  However, this was not the site we booked!

Backing the 5th Wheel in for the first time did not go as smoothly as planned.  It had rained a lot the few days prior to us arriving to the campground, so the ground was very wet and soggy.  As we were trying to back in to our reserved spot, the truck got stuck in the mud!  A nice man came to our rescue and towed us out!  We wound up having to switch campsites with our friends because we could not get our 5th Wheel into our reserved campsite.

Finally in our new campsite, safe and sound!

Cello has been to Elk Neck State Park several times already, (see below) – but this was Hooch’s first time visiting this great park! Cello has been to Elk Neck State Park three other times prior to this trip:

The weather was not so great when we first arrived.  However, we did bundle up and take a nice long walk around the campground.

The weather continued to worsen, and it began to SNOW! Cello and Hooch could not believe their eyes!

The cold snowy weather gave us some time to enjoy our new 5th Wheel.  Cello and Hooch settled right in, and seem to love their new home-away-from-home!

Luckily the weather warmed up a bit on our last day, and we were able to take a nice long walk and visit the beach!  Hooch also got to play with his Vizsla buddy, Dash!
