1117 words - 4 pages

Lake Tahoe, CaliforniaThe day begins bright and early. The sounds of the birds chirping, mixing with the warm glow of the sun shining through my tent, act as my alarm clock for the day. As I exit the tent, I inhale a deep breath of the crisp mountain air. It feels cool and fresh in my lungs. The campground is packed full of random campers from all across California and Nevada. This is defiantly the busiest time of the year for Lake Tahoe Valley Camping Resort. Being so close to the big blue lake, there is no way I am going to miss the most incredible display of fire works in all of California.Lake Tahoe Valley Camping Resort is located a few blocks down the street of South Shore Lake Tahoe. When you enter through the resorts gateway, one feels as if he is visiting a small, remote town. In the main entrance is the office where every car must be cleared before going through to ensure the safety of the campers. Once cleared, you enter into the heart of the resort. Here is a development of small buildings which provide essential accommodations to the resort guests. The mail building is a small store with a gas station. Without having to leave the premises of the resort, one can purchase almost anything they need such as: toothbrushes, band aids, refreshments, food, candy, fishing equipment, cigarettes, beer, knives, and souvenirs. Next door to the store is the arcade. Here is where I spend most of my time. The arcade is made up of two pool tables, and about twenty different arcade games. Some are outdated but others were fairly new. Outside of the arcade is a giant ice machine which makes and bags ice for a small fee. Next to the ice machine is a collection of five or six pay phones. If you continue to walk along the path way you will run into the Laundromat. Here is where all the moms like to hang out and gossip about their husbands.Behind this grouping of buildings is the entertainment area. The entertainment area is fairly large. A giant sand pit has been built in the center of this area. The sand pit is filled with more playground equipment than three schools combined. It has about ten giant swings, a two story jungle gym, a huge merry-go-round, human sized hamster wheel, three tether ball courts, and a ping pong table. There is a cemented bike path which weaves through different parts of the entertainment area. Next to the sand pit is a gated court. When you go inside of the gate you have the choice to play a full court game of basketball or challenge a friend to a game of tennis.After spending a long day in the summer heat exploring the ins and outs of the resort, one may start to break a sweat. How convenient of the resort to include a swimming pool, which is heated at night, and an extra large hot tub. In the pool area there is a men's and women's locker room. Inside the locker room one can rent a personal locker for 25 cents, and take a shower to wash the chlorine off ones body. Behind the pool area is an undeveloped area of the campground,...
