The closest campground near Highland Ridge is called Nugget Lake, and it’s a very popular county park. We had a strong storm come through last night — I was out warning our campers about it after we got notice of sustained winds up to 80 mph — and then I got my butt inside. It turned out that the worst of the storm went south of us. The town of Spring Valley was left without power. And little Nugget Lake campground is now closed until further notice because of the damage they sustained in last night’s storm.
When RV’ing, you simply cannot discount the weather. No matter how lucky one has been in the past there’s no assurance you’ll miss the next storm, and as you can see by the photos, the damage can be considerable.
Please, when you’re out there on the road and in campgrounds take precautions, be aware of where you have set your tent or parked your rig, and be aware of the trees and hazards nearby. Please.
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll be here again tomorrow to chat.
