    a bit of history ---- when we were here at Medina Lake back in 2013 the lake near the campground was dry (picture 1) .... ranchers had fenced the lake bottom and were grazing cattle down there .... when we were here back in 2016, the lakes water level had recovered as can be seen in the second picture .... at that time they started a burn pile for brush (picture 3) .... picture 4 shows that the water level wasn't anywhere near the brush pile .... now that we are here in 2019 we find the water level is even higher (contrast picture 4 with picture 1) .... take note that the burn pile wasn't close to the lake .... in picture 6 that pile can be seen sticking up out of the water .... as can be see in the last picture, the water level isn't far from some campsites ....

      for the most part, the positives and negatives that have been mentioned in this thread remain pretty much the same .... one significant negative that has been observed is the number of sites with power boxes marked as being out of service .... we haven't counted them but I wouldn't be at all surprised it there aren't 20 or more .... on the copy of the campground's map we were given, Maureen counted 44 out of 387 total sites as having 50 amp sites of those 44 .... it appears that over half of them have been dedicated to long-term rental .... some others appear to be out of service .... over hanging trees continue to be a problem .... the odds for folks with larger campers who need 50 amp service finding one unoccupied clearly appear to be pretty slim .... we've heard rumors that the park has finally gotten a little money to upgrade their facilities but even if true, it will take a great deal of money just to get it back to where it should be .... we will probably be back here again so we hope we are wrong about it

            They are either pulling water out of the aquifer or lake. Either is roiled up due all the rain. We pull from between 650 and 800 feet in the aquifer and our home filter gets filled with crud after this much rain for that reason. If they pull out of the lake, suspect the same issue as many of the people who live around the lake have a piece of pvc going down to the water and draw from the lake as it is a lot cheaper than a well. During the drought, these folks have a tanker come in and fill a tank or cistern on their property.
