9-3-06 Sprague Lake Resort. After leaving Preston Winery we headed for a place to camp for the night, we ended up in Sprague Wash. looked like a cute old town. The sign pointed to Sprague Lake Resort so thought we would check it out.
Took some photos of the town as we drove thru to see what was there, we like the back roads as we discover some really neat old towns.
Be sure to click on the name of the town it will give you direstions and some history of the town as well.
This is Sprague Lake resort. took us on a two lane rd out in the country, you end up wondering were it is takeing you but eventually you get to the entrance of the resort. The price was $26.95 for full hookups. Wasn't too bad, Specially since we had boondocked the night before. It was owned by a elderly lady. She told us that yrs ago there used to be a dance hall and the house she lived in was a restaurant but over the yrs it has all changed
Here is were we parked, across from us she had pull thrus but it looked like they had not been used for a long time. If i remeber right i think she said that with the hwy coming this hurt there business a lot.
We sort of hate hearing that because we know how it hurt our business when they put the parkway in. This was a nice lake, guess there is lots of fishing there
Here is the sun setting to a gorgous day. Now my thought about the rv park. The park in itself was very nice. The setting nice, everything about it was good, BUT only one other time had we stayed in a park that the trains ran about every 15 to 30 minutes and i am not sure it wasn't more than that. Did we get any sleep that night? NO! Would i stay there again? NO! But if trains don't bother you,its a great place. She also rents boats.
We own a small motel that we bought in 1994 and have worked at successfully, but along with everything that has gone on with the economy we no longer run it as a motel. Plus were getting old, so just do monthly's now.
I got involved with a cat rescue CRAFT NO KILL SHELTER a couple of yrs ago and have started devoting my time to saving baby kittens lives,I am the head bottle baby momma for them,I have enjoyed doing babies over the yrs although sometimes its so sad when you can't save them, but so full filling when they finally find there forever homes and know they got a good one. Sad for me when they leave however.
Please leave a comment as i would love to hear from you.
