I took my family down to Whiskey Gulch yesterday. Beautiful place, and the weather was very agreeable. We set up camp, then had a fun irish lord derby to see who could catch the largest and then ate dinner. Toward early evening I noticed that a noisy crowd of 20-ish kids was growing near the base of the hill, but hoped for the best. We lit a few fireworks on the beach, then retired to camp for some campfire time. By then the crowd had started to get juiced and had turned up their stereo louder and the expletives were beginning to fly (I hate that in front of kids). By midnight it was extremely loud and they were yelling at each other.
Well, to make a long story short, this group basically took over the whole place and played their music and yelled and screamed until maybe 4AM. Oh, and they decided to set off their own mortars about 2AM followed by ridiculous drunken slurs. When I got up at about 7:30, one of these idiots was moaning in his tent like a cow and yelling (no less) "Oh, I'm so sick."
In the middle of the night I had felt like taking a shot gun over and blowing up the boom box, but with mean stupid drunks... not worth it. i would have just left in a regular camp ground, but getting out of the Whiskey Gulch hill in the dark isn't fun with a heavy camper. You may want to avoid this place on holidays or weekends. It always amazes me how utterly selfish and stupid some people can be. These people cared nothing about the campers around them, just their own alcoholic pursuits. I hope they get a good dose of karma on down the line.
