We got camp set up and the kid wanted to swim. I was anxious to try out the trails so we decided I would ride, find the best trails for the wife and kid, then we would ride together. With close to 15 miles of trail, I figured that I could ride all of them in under 2 hrs, come back and grab the family for another hour or so.
I set off and road the loop by the boat ramp. This trail was older and less maintained. Fun but not what I was expecting. Then I headed over to the newer trail system and was greeted by some fun, fast, flowy trails. I was on the single speed and with a 32x 21 I was under geared. Next time I'll know.
Back at camp, it felt great to walk right into the lake after a hot ride. We swam for a while then got the fire started for some roasted hot dogs! Yum.
Late night smores and another swim, it was the kid's first time swimming at night. I have a giant mag light that he took in the water with him. He loves the water. Reminds me of me when I was just a little older than him. The Caribbean Sea turned out to be one of my best friends. I gotta keep getting this kid around water!
I definitely recommend this campground. It was not at all crowded and neither were the trails on Saturday and Sunday. The trails are beginner/intermediate level, but it was great to be able to go for a longish ride and not feel bad about leaving the family behind.
Can't wait to go back!
