Almost Time To Go

Our shortened time here at Corinth Recreation Area in the Bankhead National Forest is coming to an end. The campground officially closes to the public at 2:00 PM tomorrow.


For all intents and purposes, we are considering it closed today. There is only one camper left other than the manager and the hosts.


In our loop, Firefly, we ARE the loop :) It’s just us and the beautiful Fall foliage.


Tomorrow, the last few items on the closing “list” will be taken care of, the remaining restrooms will be winterized, the gates will be locked and “closed” signs put out.


We, too, will take care of our “list” and prepare to leave on Tuesday morning.


We will miss this park. It helped us get our feet wet in the volunteering/workamping arena. We could certainly do worse than to volunteer our time in such a beautiful place :) We also met some nice people here but, as they say, all good things must come to an end :)


We’ll see you from Tuscumbia, Alabama next time. Thanks for stopping by. Turtle


  1. Sounds like it was a good first experience at work camping. It should be nice and quiet until you leave:)

    Safe travels!

  2. Beautiful place. Think I could stay a long time there. I've never looked to see if state parks have monthly rates.

  3. Wow, the colors are spectacular!! Sorry that you have to leave so soon. But we are counting on you to find the next great adventure for us to follow ;o))

    Safe Travels and Happy Trails....

  4. Spectacular color. I can see how that is hard to leave. Glad you had a great work camp experience.

  5. Savor tomorrow in beautiful surroundings without the public to deal with. I love volunteering, but also enjoy the down times. :)

  6. What a beautiful looking park. Those trees are spectacular. Safe travels to your next destination.

  7. That is a beautiful state park. Your photos of the trees are very nice too. It sounds like you had a good work-camping experience those two weeks as well. We hope you have a safe travel day to your new destination.

  8. What a bummer to have to leave a beautiful place. Hopefully your next workamping job lasts as long as you need.

  9. It's sad that you have to leave such a gorgeous place. Will look forward to hearing about your next workamping stint.

    Safe travels.

  10. Those pictures are gorgeous, we will have to put this park on our list of places to visit!!

    Travel safely to your next destination!!

  11. What a beautiful place! Looks like paradise!
