A short drive to Rock Island State Park. Light rain during much of the morning, but warmer than yesterday. I'm in site 3, a water & electric site for $20.19 per night. The site is level, paved, and close to the bathrooms. After setting up the trailer I went looking for the waterfalls in the park. The park is on both sides of the lake & Caney Fork River with a power plant in the middle of things. There are waterfalls along the river with a couple of observation overlooks near the falls. Since the road over the dam is closed (like most roads over dams in the US since 9/11) you have a 5 mile drive to cross the river to get the overlook for the falls below the power plant. I took a bunch of photos from a couple of different locations.

While I have 2 bars of AT&T on the iPhone & a 4G LTE Verizon signal, the Verizon connection is slow enough to be barely usable. Luckily, the campground has WiFi & it is fast enough that I used it. It did drop the connection every once in a while, but I can live with it.
After getting back to the campsite I read for a bit (Stephen King's Finders Keepers) then headed for the showers. Excellent showers with heat, shower curtains, good adjustable shower heads, and a small, but dry drying area with a big bench & plenty of hooks. In addition to well designed bathrooms, there is a small (one washer, one dryer) laundry that is only $1.00 per load.
Dinner was a grilled chicken patty & the left over rice & broccoli from yesterday.
Until next time -
