Independence Day at Lake Glendo

4 07 2014

Sticking with a long running tradition, we’re back at Lake Glendo State Park for the July 4th weekend.  With the 4th falling on a Friday, we assume things will be very busy at Glendo.  However, we’re hopeful that leaving on Tuesday afternoon will still allow us to snag a few nice lakeside sites at Custer Cove MAP.

Arriving at the entrance to Custer Cove around 6pm, we’re greeted with a “Campground Full” sign forcing us rethink our plans and head over to Two Moon campground.  Here we’re surprised to find no cliff-side sites available and instead end up at some of the least desirable sites along the main road, #36 #37 & #38.  A “busy” 4th of July weekend appears to be an understatement this year!  Fortunately after a walk around the following morning, we’re pleased to note that some sites are empty and other campers appear to be packing up.  By noon we’ve packed up and moved to site #67, one of our favorites overlooking the dam.  We’ve also secured 2 other sites #66 and #68 for friends that will arrive later.

As temperatures approach 100 and without lake access from Two Moon, we pack up chairs, coolers and floats in search of beach access.  We end up on the point between Whiskey Gulch and Custer Cove.  We’ll try for a campsite at Custer Cove next year!
