Eastbank Campground (COE)
(NOTE: DUE TO A RECENT LAPTOP MALFUNCTION, WE’RE EXTREMELY BEHIND ON OUR BLOG. PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN WHILE WE GET CAUGHT UP.)
The title says it all, from one extreme to the other! We left City of Roses RV Park, Thomasville, GA, on Tuesday, 1/15, and drove to Eastbank Campground, a Corps of Engineer (COE) park.
Eastbank, an absolutely wonderful park, is located on the southeast side of Lake Seminole just north of the dam. It’s located just 2-3 miles north of Chattahoochee, FL, but is located in Georgia and has a mailing address in Bainbridge, GA. I’ve been wanting to stay at this campground for almost a year now. A short while back I checked availability for the site I wanted and reserved it for three nights. Site #31 is a long, concrete, 50 amp and water, satellite friendly, lakeside site with great views out our side and back windows. The campground has a total of three loops. Loops A and C are along the lake with Loop B a short distance away from the lake. Many of the sites in Loops A and C have very nice views of the lake. Here are a couple of pictures of our site.

The view from our site is awesome!
The weather was beautiful the first couple days here, so we took some walks around the campground, sat outside and enjoyed the view, and had lunch outside a couple times. We made a quick run into Chattahoochee to pick up our mail at the post office one day, and I made a bank run to deposit a check the next day. There’s a washer and dryer at one of the shower houses, so we ran a load of laundry too. Otherwise we just relaxed and enjoyed the scenery at our great campsite. Unfortunately a cold front came through Wednesday night, and it was cold and rainy on Thursday. Obviously we really liked it here, and we hope to come back again sometime soon.
Also, it was here that my laptop decided to crash, and so begins a rather frustrating saga with all of that. But alas, that story can wait until later. One quick tip however: If you haven’t done so already (or recently) with your computer/laptop, BACK IT UP, BACK IT UP, BACK IT UP!!!
