Marinette County Parks,Gathering & Water Ski

Map picture

 

It all started as a normal nice days and turned to be an unbelievable fantastic day and some of the things were not even planed-don’t you love it when the cards just fall into place at the right time…

We camped at the Wabeno Casino RV C.G with 30&50 Amps electrical hookups ,water and a dump station-the 3 first nights for free (can’t beat that),on top of this surprise there was a Pow Wow event in the premises .

As the weather was just perfect we decided to take a day trip in the area starting at the beautiful county parks Goodman & McClintock both with waterfalls and nice short trails.

Wisconsin is loaded with County groomed Parks and many are connected by ATV good gravel routes ,we drove some of them to cut distance and except getting the truck covered with dust it was fine.

After hiking and a picnic we headed South towards Veteran’s Falls and suddenly my wife saw some white tents on a large property besides the road,so I made an U turn and we drove into a family Gathering “As we lived years before” (another surprise),I do not know who was more happy they or us but any how we did friends in no time and we were welcomed to share a beer and shoot black powder .

It was nice that we almost stayed the night,but found ourselves exchanging e-mails and making new friends.

Our next stop was Veteran’s Memorial County Park ,getting to the falls we had to take many wooden & stone steps but it sure was worth it…

Now here comes another surprise- as we climb back towards the parking area we meet a guy in a wheel chair that of course could not  take the path to see the falls , he asked us if they were nice and if we want to see more falls,we told him that we are on the way to Crivitz to see a water ski show on the lake that is 20 miles East and we do not have the time to visit more falls,so he says why go there when there is the best water ski show just around the corner in High Falls and as you have time now till the show starts go to Rene’s restaurant at the lake and enjoy some great food….

So we saved 20 miles one way , had a good meal and made it on time for the last Water Ski Show this season.

I love those unplanned experiences that turn out so perfectly. Shooting black powder and watching unbelievable water skiing - what a day. Just wanted to let you know, I left a message for your friends but I've never heard back from them.
