We spent the night at South Marcum campground on Rend Lake south of Mt. Vernon. This is a great Corps of Engineers facility and looks like a good place to return to. The campground is pretty full with lots of families due to the long holiday weekend. Our site has a slant requiring three boards under one side of the camper but the payoff is an incredible view from the picnic table at the back of the site. Several kids cut through while we were eating supper to fish below us on the bank--one young girl with her first catch. And I should mention that this place has A+ shower houses.
Today we will head through Kentucky to Tennessee--another long driving day--to Fall River Falls State Park and spend three days there. Maybe we'll see Dan'l Boone.
