I left Doniphan, NE about noon and drove 406 miles to Angostura Recreation Area. There is a large reservoir lake that covers 4407 acres with the recreation area along the eastern side. There are four campgrounds.
The sites here were electric only so I had to stop and fill my water tank before parking. I stopped just before my site to take a few photos of the sunset.
I am in the mountain time zone here so I arrived and was setting up about 7:15pm which felt like 8:15pm to me.
I am staying here with a fiberglass trailer group of twenty trailers. When I drove in I was excited to see another EggCamper. In seven years of owning my EggCamper I have never seen another one in person. There were only 130 produced.
So I was set up by 8:00pm and by 9:00pm I heard raindrops on the roof. Ten minutes later I hear a very, very loud siren going off. So that had never happened to me while camping before. So I drove over to the camp host location that was across from the shower/bathroom house and people were filing in. I guess this is the strongest shelter available in the campground. So I am standing in the men’s room with fifteen other campers while the siren continues and the wind blows and it rains. It was a good way to meet people. I met Pat and Linda from Illinois, the owners of the other EggCamper. Their EggCamper was produced the same year as mine – 2010. They also travel with two dogs.
The siren finally stopped and at 9:30pm a park ranger stopped by and told us it was clear to return to our trailers.
