    McKinney Campground – 55

    08.16.19-08.18.19 We finally reserved the in-laws’ favorite site: number 55 at McKinney Campground. You know when someone has been camping for thirty years and they have a favorite site they ALWAYS book, it has to be good. The draw to site 55 is the fact that it is a pull-thru site with a large living space. It would be great for anyone with children or dogs. The site is mostly shaded, making for those hots summer days to not be so miserable. We aren’t usually a fan of the sites that have concrete picnic tables, however the one at this site was in a great spot. To the left of…

    McKinney Campground – 109

    07.01.19-07.07.19 First time on the other side of the campground! McKinney has a total of 149 sites, but we have always stayed on the side with sites 50 and lower. Someone canceled site 109 about a week before the 1st and we were the lucky ones to scoop it up. Yes, it’s harder and harder to reserve the best sites–especially for the holiday weekends. Do not get discouraged! Site 109 is in a loop next to the boat ramp and marked with a grave site. I could find little information about the grave site or person buried there, but the marker says its the wife of G.B. McKinney born in…

    McKinney Campground – 17

    8.30.18-9.3.18 Holiday weekend means one extra day to enjoy the campground/lake! Last minute we registered for the site Thursday night so that when I got off work Friday at 4 p.m. I would be able to enjoy the evening without having to worry about packing the camper and setting up the site. By Friday evening the campground was full, however it seemed like everyone trickled in. There was not a huge back-up around 6 p.m. at the gate. I know this because we forgot so many things–hotdogs, HDMI cord, and eggs for breakfast. Site 17 is a back-in site (considered waterfront) costing 32$ a night. The site is level and…

    McKinney Campground – 47

    0.7.27.18-07.29.18 How many water hoses do you have? Before the trip, our answer to that was two. One for our fresh water and one that my wife uses during dumping to flush out our system. If you stay in the gorgeous waterfront site 47, at McKinney Campground though, you will need a second hose (3rd in our instance.) I highly recommend it, otherwise, in order to reach the water supply, you will have to navigate your camper to the very back of the site past the large tree. If that is your option you will most likely open your camper door straight onto the stairs that go down to the…

    McKinney Campground – 37

    04.27.18-04.29.18 Ended up in the exact same site as our very first trip in the camper. It’s a beautiful site with easy water access down a short path. The dogs LOVE the water. Check out my very first blog post here. Obviously McKinney is a favorite to our family, it was just a couple weeks ago that we stayed in site 15. Hopefully you won’t get bored of hearing about this campground from me, because we will be back this summer. Check out how big Summit has grown in a year! It’s still Spring here (not for much longer) so the temperatures stayed pretty cool in the evenings and warmed up as…
