Port Crescent

Tuesday, 20th July 2010; 8:37 am - Location:

When I explained to the park ranger at Sleeper what I was doing, she asked if I was stopping at Port Crescent. It seemed an odd question since it’s just a few miles from Sleeper: kind of a short day’s ride. But she meant just for a stop, and I took her at her suggestion.

Nothing against Sleeper, but this is a good argument for not picking campgrounds based primarily on math. I went with Sleeper because that made yesterday’s ride a little shorter and today’s a little longer: more even. But this is a much nicer park, for my uses. The day use area isn’t just a beach, but a big lakeshore nature preserve. There’s a birdwatching platform (new) with a great view of the lakeshore/dune ecosystem.

Sleeper was a good place to spend the night. Port Crescent would have been a good place to spend the day.
