This was our first stop-over on our way to the 2018 DockDogs World Championship.

Around the campground…
This was a great stop-over on our way to TN, but we’d love to come back to this campground again to stay a while longer!
When we competed at the 2018 Hebron Harvest Fair, we camped at Nelson’s Family Campground.
We stayed on site T-48.
Although this site was directly across from the campground’s service center, it was a perfect site for us, as it had a very roomy grass area to walk the dogs.
This campground had a lot to offer!

We camped here while attending the 2018 Hopkinton State Fair.
We stayed on site G9
We arrived much later than expected and it was SO dark that we missed a turn. People at this campground were so nice – before we knew it we had a whole crew of people helping us back up (NOT an easy thing to do where we ended up!) One of the campers even drove in their golf cart to lead us to our campsite. I don’t know what we would have done without their help that night!
There was plenty of space to walk the dogs. All the campers were so excited to meet the “dock dogs!”
This was our first time staying at this campground – but we liked it so much that we already booked it for the 2019 Hopkinton Fair!
On our way to the K9 Central Wild Card Double Header, we stayed overnight for the first time at Bedford Creek Marina and Campground .
We had a nice end spot with room to walk the dogs.
When Rita and I went for our first walk, look at what we saw at someone’s campsite! I was hoping we’d get to see the GSP, but we didn’t. Maybe next time!
This campground offers a beach, boat rentals, marina, pizza & ice cream shop, and mini golf!
Margarita and I walked down to see the beach in the morning.
What a view!
Rita enjoyed stalking all the birds!
Taking in the views!
This campground was a great stop-over!
Brian and I camped at Crystal Springs Wilderness Lodges & RV Resort for our 11th anniversary on August 4, 2018!
The site was spacious!
Around the campground…
Margarita found a friend! This bull is actually a smoker! I was hoping we’d get to see someone using it during our stay – I bet it looks so neat when the meat is cooking and the smoke is coming out of the bull’s nose!
Whiskey enjoyed the scenery too
Whiskey noticed a friend off in the distance – but was too afraid to go closer!
Hanging out around outside our camper and enjoying the weather!
We love playing Scrabble – and the dogs love helping their Pop!
Hooch wants to play the winner!
Mojitos, beer, and Scrabble – our kind of summer day!
Another great camping trip – and another year in the books – Happy 11 Years to us!
We camped for the first time at Village Green Family Campground when we competed at Klem’s DockDog Days.
This campground had been hit hard by a tornado in 2011. They are still working to recover from the tragic losses that ensued from that disaster. However, the owners could not have been nicer, and despite what the campground had been through, it looked great and was very enjoyable.
Our campsite was private and had a HUGE living space…perfect for letting the dogs out!
On the way home from the DockDogs World Championship, we did an over night stay at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in Natural Bridge, VA.
Margarita taking a stroll around the campground – she was fascinated by the free-roaming chickens!
We had a very nice stay at this campground. If you have never seen the Natural Bridge, this is definitely a trip to add to your travel wish list!
