I’m not trying to do an advertisement of any sort but the LIW campground has some unique lodgings that I’ve not seen to this degree of variety in one place. For the most part, at least 300 of the 400 sites are cut into the existing flora and native foliage, disturbing only enough to establish a site. This provides for total privacy between sites since the indigenous greenery is left intact. As you can see in this photo, the Bakker family has provided us with a cozy site that is a pleasure to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. Its deep within a wooded area and looks remote, yet our neighbors are just a stone throw away if we want to visit.
There are also several park models throughout the park that have been purchased over time and sales for new units continue.
But if you’re looking for something different for you or the family check these venues out, ranging from two to six sleepers. There is the English Double decker bus, (circa 1950’s) with an added porch and upgrades:
Moving right down the road from the London bus is a former cedar structure that added a bath, some amenities, and and altitude adjustment for camping high into the treetops. This one isn’t for the faint of heart or those with any fear of heights:
Continuing my jaunt down the road near the lake, I came upon the Lake House of which I was able to snap a shot of the inside:
Winding one’s way up and around the myriad of sites to the east side of the campground you’ll pass through a series of well-manicured sites, mostly paved concrete until you come to a triage of these unique abodes, the first being the eye catching caboose:
I then headed down toward the lake to find the last of what I thought would be unique rentals and found more than I expected coming first upon the Presidential Suite which is divided into two units of the Red and Green barns respectively, with all amenities included within:Around the corner and down the road a bit you’ll find an antique yacht looking as if Gilligan and Ginger might just be onboard:
I thought I was done until I happened upon the Pirate House. As I said the native greenery lends to the privacy of these places. And when a tree dies here, there’s no removal or cutting it down, they just turn it into a work of art, much like the oak turned Lighthouse
And then walking down to the edge of the lake to see the fountain and find out how the fishing was you come into view of the Yurt:
As I walked over I saw one of the other workampers readying the place for the weekend. She allowed me to go in to snap a few shots. I didn’t do the place justice as I didn’t have a wide angle lens on this walk and you couldn’t see the immense living area inside this Yurt. It comes with it’s own private dock, boat, deck and grill. I’m sure that campgrounds around the country have one or more of these items. I’ve just never seem so many on one place. It gives one a sense of ownership to the campground and making is such a pleasant experience to work here. I’m sure as the summer goes on there will be more eye candy for your pleasure.
