My own camping spot overlooking Glen Echo Lake.
Over the winter me and my friends have been slowly putting together a campsite at the sickest spot my town has to offer. Glen Echo Park was a flourishing tourist attraction back in its day, but since was privately owned and recently donated back to the town of Stoughton. The town claims to have plans and money to invest in making it a legitimate state park or reservation, but after a few years, nothing has been done. So we’re taking it upon ourselves to make it even nicer than it already is. There’s multiple clearings on each side of the 60 foot deep lake that make for perfect camping site or just a place to sit and relax. We put together a fireplace overlooking the lake and cut a piece of a down tree for a place to sit. Eventually, sometime within the next month, a small cabin and a raft or two will also be made and kept here for whoever wants to enjoy it. We’re also going to be cleaning it up because there is so much litter along the trails it isn’t even funny. So we’ll bring trash barrels and chain them to trees and regularly change out the bags, and do a number of similar things to keep up with this forgotten attraction, which by the way has a 45 foot high granite ledge jump for summer swimming.
