Mike & Amanda & Pilot.
This was Pilot's first camping experience and it went very well. We just brought his soft-crate and and long leash, and he had a great time. I think he only barked once at night.
We took the week after the May24 off, and just hung out in Ottawa. Mid-week we drove to Silver Lake without reservation. Normally I look down on car camping, but mid-week the place is deserted, and it's almost as good as back country.
We chose a site at the northern end of the campground. There's not much to do there and the swimming isn't great (except at the beach where dogs aren't allowed), but we had a nice time.
