Wandering Dawgs Wander Again

Not all of our wandering is to far away places like Alaska or the Yukon. Sometimes we wander close to home. On Monday, we hitched up the Titanium for a road trip to Auburn, Alabama to watch the south’s oldest football rivalry between Georgia and Auburn this coming Saturday. We decided to take a few extra days and explore a new to us Corps of Engineers park on West Point Lake in West Point, Georgia just off of I-85 near the Georgia/Alabama line. It’s great traveling during the week during the off season. We are almost the only ones here.

We spent three relaxing nights in site 113 in the campground with no other campers in our loop. The trees were wearing their fall colors and the sunsets were spectacular.

Our only neighbors were the geese.

R Schaefer Heard Campground on West Point Lake is one of three Corps of Engineers campgrounds on the lake. Our site is about 40 feet from the lake and like most COE parks we have a large site with plenty of room between our site and the ones on either side.  Our site is a paved, back in site with water and electric hookups, a tent pad, fire ring, picnic table and a beautiful lake view. For more information about the park or to make reservations you can go the Recreation.gov site for R Schaefer Heard

  1. Looks like a beautiful lake. You and Henry are sure seeing some fantastic places in this wonderful country. Cheer for Chris and me at the game the Saturday. We will be at home in Georgia cheering from our sofa.


  2. Went there once- but don’t remember this beauty. Your photos are amazing and sure make me look forward to retiring one day and hitting the road!! In the meantime you keep wandering and posting, have fun!


    1. We love COE parks! Most of the ones in the south have water and electric. We have even stayed in a couple with full hookups. Go to recreation.gov to search for parks. Once you find a park each site will show the length of the pad, what hookups there are, how close to the water, etc. Not all sites are big enough for our fifth wheel so researching ahead of time really helps to make sure there are sites big enough for us. And if you have the Federal Senior pass you can stay for half price in most COE parks!


  3. We have been to some beautiful COE parks but not this one… Good to see you guys out and about again!


  4. Awesome! Charlie and I camped by that lake near LaGrange, GA in 2012 returning home from Pac West. It is a beautiful setting – glad you two are enjoying it. Keep on camping!
