To enjoy the continued nice weather on Sunday, we hopped the bike for a short ride.  Around the corner and down the street we happened to see a sign for Hidden Lake RV Park.  The office was closed, but we rode the park to see if we might want to move there on Tuesday when our week is up at Northgate.  This was the whole park—30 sites.  Other than the office (which was closed) we saw no other building such as showers/restrooms or laundry, but a trip to their website said they are there. 


There was a gravel road around the whole lake for walking, biking, or fishing.  This place is slightly less per week than Northgate and, in Texas speak, right next door.  We are thinking of moving here Tuesday when our week is up at Northgate. 


From Hidden Lake we cruised along CR 35, aka Lavender Road.  to check out Five Star RV Park.


We’d stayed here before when we had business in Tyler.  It is a little cheaper than Northgate, but a bit nicer. Actually, most places are nicer than where we are now.  This place is $25 cheaper for a week but farther for us to drive to doctors.  Parking is on gravel.  We were surprised to see that the place was almost empty.  We didn’t cruise this park, but when we were here before there was a walking trail around a pond hidden in those trees.


There are showers


and an office (closed today).  In the right end of the building, up the ramp


is a 2/2 laundry sharing space with


the book/dvd library.


After we checked out these parks we rode to Camping World to spend our $10 credit, and to Walmart for a few fresh vegetables, then home to exercise our newly repaired generator.

Pickleball and decisions tomorrow.

The sites at the last park look really long and plenty of space between each site. We like those types of sites.
