Very nice place! I can see why you go there (apparently) frequently!
Interested to see some of your mods too - the mirror on the bathroom door, for example, and the curtains. Did you have day-night shades originally, or something else that you removed?

I absolutely love the third sunset photo - you should submit that to a few contests as I'd suspect with a great silhouette like that you'd be a contender.

Actually the day/night shades are still there behind the drapes. The ones across the back windows, behind the sofa and dining table plus the ends of the slide room are all on travis rods. We did remove the day/night shade in the back window and replaced it with a mini-blind but will probably eventually put the day/night back up. We've had so many broken cords on our shades we don't really like to use them often and MOST of the time depend on the drapes to cover the windows except when it's really hot and need the extra insulation of the shades. Since these pictures were taken we've completed the drapes project and now removed ALL of the valances.

The mirror is a welcome addition and in keeping with my dislike of putting holes in an RV it hangs over the bathroom door but has velcro pads to keep it from swinging around when traveling.

Skip,
Lake Perry is on our “must see” list for this fall, would you mind sharing which camp site you camped at? It looks beautiful!!

I think our favorite is PC 74. The peninsula campground has 3 loops. The A loop is primitive camping only, the B loop is down the center of the peninsula and has nice views but is further from the waters edge. The C loop is clear out on the point is is a circle around the perimeter of the small point of land. There is not an abundance of shade out there with most sites having only a single tree, placed to provide afternoon shade but for spring or fall camping it's really fantastic. PC 74 is about 50 feet from the water on two sides and has a pretty much unblocked view towards the north end of the lake some 15 miles north and southeast towards the dam (only a couple of miles). Lake Perry has a number of nice hiking trails, and a good (I'm told) ATV riding area in the Delaware Marsh below the dam. It also has a RC strip, two marinas and is considered a great sailing lake with generally good breezes. Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks, I appreciate that information and look forward to spending a long fall weekend checking out the lake.

Hay Jim, let us know when you're coming and we'll try to make it out for a visit. We should be back from our fall trip sometime in late September.
