Millwood State Park, Site #77

After leaving North Toledo Bend State Park, we’re headed north to Ashdown, Arkansas.  The highway that runs north to Ashdown from Texarkana literally straddles the Texas/Arkansas state line for about 10 miles. The northbound lanes are in Arkansas and the southbound lanes are in Texas.  The 114 campsites at Millwood are organized around 5 loops, with many water-front sites.  We’re parked in site #77, a back-in site on the outside edge of loop D with direct lake access.  Most of the sites are set in a large forest of tall evergreens, and provide water and electric.  There are common bathrooms and shower houses along with a dump station near the entrance station.  While the sites are well spaced, there is no ground cover in these tall, thick trees and sounds of dogs and children playing carry well.  But, despite several fairly large groups being close-by, things are quiet by early in the evening.

Tomorrow we’ll start our westward journey back toward Colorado with two long travels days – stopping once in north-central Texas around Wichita Falls and then in the panhandle around Dalhart.  More after we return to Texas…
