Campers go beyond the basics

DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. — Roger LaPointe and his wife, Claire, started camping with a small canvas tent and a love of wild places. These days that love remains, but the canvas tent has given way to more modern lodgings.

Family connections then brought the couple to Clarksville, Tenn., in 1982. They soon discovered Pennyrile Forest State Park.

"We've been coming here since 1983," Roger LaPointe said Wednesday. "It's peaceful. It's green. It's clean. We've gone to a lot of state and national parks, and at most of those places you can reach out and touch your neighbor. These campsites are roomy."

LaPointe was standing beneath a blue canopy that covered a pair of picnic tables and adjoined their travel trailer at the park.

"We started with a four-man tent," Claire LaPointe said. "And we used to backpack, too. We'd be in our tent, and someone would pull up in a (travel) trailer and just plug everything in."
