Land Between the Lakes. I had never been and The Husband hadn't been since he was younger. It's only 2-ish hours from where we live. I looked over the map of LBL and decided to pick a spot at Energy Lake campground because of it's central location.
According to the reservation website, check-in time isn't until 4:30pm, which I think is a little late. However we arrived about 2:30pm and didn't have a problem checking in. In fact, the attendants were so friendly! Very accommodating and pleasant. When we were checking out, they asked us to stay on a few more days. The ice, firewood, and other items were not overpriced. We only had to buy one package of wood for the three nights we were there.
There are four sections to the Energy Lake campground. We stayed in Area C.
We arrived on a Saturday so most other campers left the next day. It was fairly quiet except for the occasional screams of our three year old. I never realized just how LOUD she is until we were in a quiet situation. We will definitely go back. Probably stay in the same section, but in a different site. Probably without the kids. As much as I love a good family get away, I was so exhausted when we got home on Tuesday afternoon that I barely remember doing anything once we got here.
