After two stops at Casino Campgrounds we opted next for a quieter spot and we found just the park in Dorchester, WI. It was another short driving day and we pulled into a nice campground called Dorchester County Park. Peaceful, quiet and green… and halfway between the equator and the north pole - perfect!!!
With rain in the forecast we really didn’t plan to do much for our two day stay. Dorchester is a small town with not a lot to do so we figured it was a perfect spot to wait for the rainstorms to pass on by. The park itself is really quite nice. The pads are a bit overgrown in that the grass is about to reclaim them but they have full hookups at the bargain price of $18/night.
It rained most of the day our first day in Dorchester so we didn’t do a whole lot of anything other than watching some of the newer episodes of “Orange is the New Black.” Sharon made some bread trying out a new recipe after the dough we took out of the freezer was a bit flat. She usually makes enough dough to make two loaves of bread so she will freeze one. Sometimes the second dough comes out of the freezer a bit flat and she read online about a way to “bring it back to life” and made a new type of bread for us. It came out really plump and tasty!!!
The rain did let up enough on the second day for us to take in a walk around the lake adjacent to the park. This park also has a disc golf course on it that we also played and enjoyed. Those who that aren’t very good golfers really should consider taking up disc golf. A great beginner set is all you need and they can be purchased pretty cheaply. We love playing as it is a great way to get in some good walking (some courses will have us walking 3 miles) and provides some really inexpensive entertainment (most courses are free).
This turned out to be a quiet but enjoyable two day stay before moving on to Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
NOTE: We are currently in Rochester, Minnesota…
