This summer has flown by for us here at Tippecanoe River Run. We have been busy at the campground celebrating all of the major holidays that summer brings along and enjoying the amazing weather while it lasts.
Hence, why we have not blogged in awhile. Making time to blog during high camping season is difficult.
This summer we managed to complete some additional updates to the campground.
Small updates were made to the shower house. With a new paint scheme we feel it looks more welcoming. The inclusion of new hanging hooks, and decor has provided a more welcoming vibe.
The playground installation was completed just before Memorial Day. It has been wonderful to watch so many children enjoying it. The curly slide is a huge hit with all ages. There is still more work to do to the area, such as bedding and edging. For now we are happy with the progress. A good friend recently said “Rome wasn’t built in a day!”
We also made additional upgrades to the electrical system throughout the campground, which allow us to better serve our guests.
New signs were placed at the campground & along the road to direct traffic. We really like our Firewood & Eggs for sale sign near the entrance.
This summer we have noticed an increase in overnight campers thanks to our new google, yelp and hip camp listings. Meeting new campers from all over the United States has been a welcomed experience. We’ve had bikers off the Nickle Plate Trail, guests from the Trail of Courage, Boy Scouts, and many through travelers. Thank you everyone for welcoming them to our little slice of heaven.
This past weekend we enjoyed a “Painting party” and that was a huge hit! We will certainly be offering something similar again in the future.
Coming up this October are the Annual Family Fun Night co-hosted with the Fulton County Public Library. We plan on having a bonfire, singing, reading and slime making. Snacks included. It is always a lot of fun for the children..
Trick or Treating is also approaching fast, and is scheduled for October 20th. We are currently full for trailer sites, but we still have a handful of tent spaces available. Book soon if you would like one. Last year we had over 80 little goblins and ghouls visit!
We are excited to welcome fall, as this is our personal favorite time of the year for fires & friends. We finished decorating around the campground, and it is looking great!
See you outside,
