Aerial Photograph of High Plains Camping RV Resort

It’s wonderful to have an aerial photograph to show you. The RV park goes mostly unseen until you park your RV and take a walk around the facilities.

The image has you looking toward the north. The driveway (toward bottom right) leads you to the “Welcome Center” (store / office), which is under the single story part of the main building (east end, green tin roof). The laundry & restrooms are on the ground floor of that main building, toward the center and west end.

Behind the main buiding are the 3 hot tubs, a sand game field, the Spray Zone (2 cement pads in photo), and then the 18 holes of miniature golf. Just north of the mini-golf is the U-Pick Organic Garden.

Nearly dead-center of the picture is the Rec & Relaxation Sunflower Barn (white barn with tan roof). It’s sandwiched between the playground and the horseshoe games.

The long, level pull-through RV sites are to the S, W, and N of the main building. The tent spaces are numerous in all the fields and within the tree-lined perimeter.

We aren’t always this green! It’s been a wet year so far, so please enjoy the green but don’t get your hopes set on seeing it so lush every month of the year! Remember, the camp sites are open every day of the year. Sometimes the ground is white!

    The park covers 15 acres. Probably aboutt 3 of those are not in the shot simply because of the peculiar angles of the property line.

    Nice picture! It gives a great perspective on everything! Where do you usually put the tent campers?

      Rustic (no utility) tenters get to select from several territories. Some people go to the NW corner and duck into the pine trees. Some go to the W or the N of the minigolf, in the field. Some go just to the west of the western road. And those who aren’t sensitive to lights sometimes pitch a tent to the west of my main building, behind my carports & garage. They like being close to the bathrooms.

      I’ve never had more than maybe 10 tents in 1 night. Usually I have 0 or 1. Last night I had 5. I suppose I could handle 150 without anyone complaining of being too crowded. Recently I was asked and hated to quote a max. I simply said 1,500 would stretch my limits! 🙂
