TELL US ALL ABOUT IT: Sandy Pond will be forever in my heart because this was the very first place my husband I camped in our new-to-us Scamp! We didn’t really know what we were doing and were afraid of backing up at a campground, so I booked a pull-through site for us for a couple of nights. Plymouth is about an hour away from our home, so I figured if anything went wrong, we’d be nearby. It all turned out fine, of course, and we had a lot of fun figuring thigs out. We made long lists of things we’d need to buy and ways we wanted to customize the Scamp. We had been staying at home for the prior five months, so being somewhere new, with a swimming pond, was a dream! Normally, the campground hosts all sorts of events, such as ice cream socials, trivia nights, games and more, but none of that was happening last year. I’d love to go back when things are really buzzing.
