We stayed at a camping resort called Farmers Gene near Shawno Wi.

Once we arrived I ran in to check us in. Now when I called I was told we would be by the pool would that be ok. First mistake should of asked more questions. I said sure as we have no bathroom in are pop and thought this would mean close to the restrooms. I signed some papers was given a gate card and shown on the map where to go. I was a little surprised that no other info was given. Not even a map. We drive down to are site past the pool and we had some trouble finding are spot. Did not know that they are marked on the trees and go even and odd. That would of been helpful. It is looking really crowded and a women came over to me trying to sell me tye dye items. I politely declined. She also informed that it was Blue Grass weekend.

Now I did see that on the website for themed weekends but I was thinking it would be canceled like everything else.  Second mistake not asking if it was canceled. Now this women did tell me that this was going to be a mini fest because the the real one was canceled. Third mistake not going in the office to ask about this. I do know that they have a strict no refund policy and only offer credits.

 We got a late start and it's getting late we set up and I go off to find the bathrooms. I will end it here in suspense will I find a bathroom what will it be like?

Left off in search of a flushable toilet. I know we passed the pool on the way in so I head off in that direction. 

First I have to climb a hill and it's not small you could sled down this  baby in winter. Walk across the driveway past the office check in area I see a restroom sign.

I walk in and there are 3 showers that you have to pay to use. Another mistake not asking about the showers I guess if free showers are not listed you need to ask.

3 sinks and 4 stalls with regular toilets. So one good thing! This bathroom was in major need of a remodel but does not look to bad.

Head back down and finish set up. The guy across from us has 3 easy tents 2 sleeping and a nice tye dye sheet hanging up. It looks like no limits to what you can have on site.

Also there is a fire ring up against a tree so it looks like make a fire anywhere you want? 

 They have a on site bar and restaurant that was what I planned on for dinner. I did see a sign at the office only dine in from 6-8 because of lack of staff. Sorry but we did not feel comfortable eating in and no outside dining. My son found us a little place about 10 min away in town. Counter service outside tables and ice cream. We head over there. This place was perfect for what we needed and the food wasn't bad.

 We head back to the resort and it's party time the have a pavilion with a stage up front where you enter and this place was rockin. We head back to the camper and it's party time by the site across from us also. I saw a sign that says quiet time 11 pm we will turn the tv up and wait till then.

 Up next does it get quiet at 11?

11 o'clock comes and goes and it's not quiet. We are sleepy so we turn in for the night. We head up to the bathroom my son and husband watch some of the show from a distance. We head back down and try to sleep. Around 1 'o clock when it's quiet enough for me to fall a sleep with ear plugs in. My husband is a little hard of hearing so he drifts right off. I found out later my son fell a sleep around the same time as me.

 7:30 am I am awakened by the sound of yard work being done not sure where it was but, close. My husband got up around 7 and went for a walk around. 

My son slept another hour. We get up make breakfast dressed and get the heck out of there. 

What do we do ?Where do we go?
