GIANT CITY STATE PARK CAMPGROUND, NEAR CARBONDALE, IL
29 June, 2004. There are very nice showers here- you can actually adjust the temperature! Cold showers haven't been the problem, scalding hot showers that can't be adjusted have become the problem (mostly at Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds). We also have internet access here. Very few people camping. We got a $5 / night rate for having an Illinois address and Disabled Veteran card. The ranger was very cool and admitted that the Veteran / Illinois Resident discount is very vague so he gave us the discount. We also had an old friend visit and had a great time. Internet access was shaky, but we were able to get some work done.
