Q. Are there any hazards in the campgrounds?
A. Yes. Besides poison ivy, we have poisonous snakes (Copperheads and Water Moccasains by the pond area). These tend to abandon the area once people start showing up. Best advice is to not stick your unprotected hands in any brush pile (use a hoe or rake instead). We also have scorpions, which fortunately are just the kind to give a bee type sting unless you are allergic. Same thing for the bees and hornets in the area (bring your anti-venom treatments). There are also Brown Recluse Spiders and Black Widows in the brush piles, so clear brush accordingly.
These three types of camping troubles can strike campers almost anywhere. Until some brilliant scientist invents a weather machine to control bad weather or a kind of wildlife repellant, unlucky campers will continue to shake their fists in frustration. More than likely, equipment will continue to malfunction. Even so, camping continues to be a favorite pastime of people all across the United States. If you want camping to be a happy experience for you, learn to laugh at leaky tents, bad weather, and bugs, or you will find yourself frustrated and unhappy.
