Corydon, Indiana

We pulled into Corydon, Indiana Tuesday the 23rd. It is the historic first capital of Indiana, and home for 30 years to my younger brother, Jim. His wife, Susan, is from this area, and has lots of family nearby. It's a beautiful area. We are booked for a month at the Grand Trails RV Park. It is located within walking distance of downtown Corydon. Like many small towns in Indiana, it has a courthouse green in the center of the downtown with shops around the courthouse square. It is very quaint. I'm looking forward to going through the shops. Another great feature of the RV park is that it is by a greenbelt with a stream and paved walkway. I'm told the paved path goes a long way, and connects to a large park. Just up the road from our campside is an island in the stream that used to be a baseball field. It has been abandoned since the new baseball fields were made. The island, connected by a bridge to the pathway, is the perfect place for Prin and Sugar to run. It's like having our own dog park and is sooooo close by! We couldn't ask for anything better! The RV park rate for the month is $399 with metered electricity. We're told that the highest electric bill has been $70. We have hook-ups for water, electricity, and sewer, but no internet. Luckily the library is closeby and has internet services available.
We are told that the RV park will be getting internet and cable t.v. soon. We'll take some pictures of the area, as we get out exploring. Marilyn
