Brookville Lake Mounds SP (IN) July 26-28th
From the RV Rally we drove though downtown Louisville and crossed the Ohio River into Indiana's back-roads on the eastern side of the state to Brookville Lake Mounds S.P. Another lake dammed by the Army Corp. of Engineers back in 1975 for flood control in the Whitewater Valley and contributes to the reduction of flood flows in the Ohio River. This campground by far the largest we have stayed in so far with 368 sites; of which 56 sites have full-hookups, which we ended up with and rest are electric only, paved, or tent sites. The park is clean and well maintained and it had plenty of hiking trails to choose from .7 to 16.5 miles long. In order to get to the bench you have to drive about 2.5 miles all within the park. On our last day here I decide to kayak the East Fork Whitewater River starting at the tailwaters. Buddy wouldn't let me go without him. We went as far as where the East Fork meets the West Fork Whitewater River and then we radio'd Darlene to rendezvous at Morgan's Canoe Livery. It's not the best time of year kayaking this river because the water level too low going though the rapids. So you know who had to get out, and he didn't mine it at all. We seen plenty of ducks, geese, cranes and hundreds of different kinds of Trout. Some good keepers I might add. Too bad I forgot my waders in storage. Told those Trout I'll be back someday. We're northward bound and over one state into Why-O Ohio!!
