Rainbow Springs State Park By Pat Long September 2020


Fifteen members of the FL Potluck Campers enjoyed a hot, humid, steamy weekend at Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon, FL, 9/11-13.  The first visitors to this park arrived 10,000 years ago.

Hosts Pat and George Long welcomed guests to their site Friday night for the 7 PM meet and greet with coffee plus appetizers/desserts brought by members for all to enjoy.  We even had a Bloomin’ Onion!  Thanks Marlice/Ray!  That was a treat.  About 1000 love bugs also enjoyed our company but the fans kept them at bay.  There was a lot of catching up on everyone’s lives since the last time we camped together was in March.   

So to beat the heat, Saturday morning most of us went tubing in the springs for two hours and were definitely cooled by the 72 degree water.  We all did the shorter trip to beat the afternoon thunderstorms. Then Saturday evening everyone regrouped at the hosts’ site for the 6 PM potluck buffet.  Since it was 9/11 weekend, the theme was “USA” so a traditional American summer picnic was enjoyed by all.  Fried chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers with all the trimmings, baked beans, potato salad, relish tray, you get the picture.  And, of course, apple pie, lemon cake, pumpkin cupcakes, cookies, etc. wow!  

Since it’s all about the lush sapphire-blue springs at this park, Sunday morning a few of us canoed or pedaled up stream to the mouth of the spring.  In addition to the usual cranes and turtles, an otter was spotted.  Two boats actually then went all the way down to Swampy’s Restaurant!  They were dead tired Sunday evening but they got their workout finished for the week.  Sunday evening’s movie was Central Intelligence with Kevin Hart and The Rock.  Excellent choice Sharon!   

It was truly a lazy, hazy, crazy last few days of summer and a great way to end the summer.

Why Join A Club?

There is no better feeling when you pull into a campground and you know most of the people there.
I started camping with my family 15 years ago and every campground we went to, no matter how many people were at the campground we always felt alone.   By the time you met other campers it was time to pack up and go home. But now since we joined the "Florida Potluck Campers" its like a BIG family reunion every trip. You pull into the campground and they know your coming and what site you will be staying on. If you need help they are there, having issues with your camper... most likely someone there can fix it and so on...... This is the only way to camp!! So come on out and see for yourself what we are all about and how much fun camping is when you have friends everywhere you go. 

In Memory Of Steve Harris  6/13/2012

 
Steve shared his love and wisdom of camping with each one of his fellow campers. Upon arriving at each campout, we were greeted with a warm hello and an encouraging word. Steve cared about each family and would always check on each camper until the last family arrived safely at their site. He would make his way throughout the weekend to visit and share his knowledge of camping, the park we were camping at and places of interest in the area. As we continue to share the memory and our love to camp, we have become the Florida Pot Luck Campers.
