A Lake and a Gold Mine

We left our site at Lake Thurmond Thursday for a short drive north in hopes of getting a site at Parson's Mountain Lake in the Sumter National Forest.
After a good short drive we arrived at our destination at the usual site that we stay in each time we have been here.  This is a little used campground but it has water spigots scattered around the circle of sites rest rooms with flush toilet and showers.  Also it has a dump station, so at $3.50 with my Golden Age Passport it is a good price.
There is a nice small lake for fishing and swimming.
A picnic area at the lake side with shade trees to have you out of the sun.
Here's something you will not find at many campgrounds, a trail to a Gold Mine.
Close up of the sign.

A few wildflowers around the lake.
The only wildlife that I have seen thus far were squirrels and these three ducks on the lake.

It is so nice and quiet here, it's on a weekend and only two other campsites are occupied besides us.

We went to Lynn's Cafe when we finished setting up Thursday to have our supper,
Also while in Abbeville I filled the car up with regular gas for $1.76 a gallon.  The lowest I have paid for gas in a long time.
We will be here for a few days then will visit Nancy's brother in Simpsonville, SC.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
