Cooler temperatures aren't stopping campers from enjoying Memorial Day Weekend

Posted:

The unofficial start to summer is finally here but it doesn't exactly feel like summer out there.  But that isn't stopping anyone from enjoying Memorial Day Weekend.  Eby Pines Campground in Elkhart County is Packed.

This is the first time this season Cedric Hentsch and his family are camping.  "Unofficial start to summer and I was hoping it'd be a little warmer but sunny and in the 60's will do," said Hentsch.

Other campers agree this weather will be just fine.  Patrick and Cheryl Morgan said, "It's going to be perfect this weekend. Not too hot.  It's a little chilly at night but we'll be ok."  And Casey Gowen said, "Beautiful, anytime the sun shines it's a beautiful day."

In fact even a little rain wouldn't dampen the holiday weekend for these campers.  "You make the best of it, you sit inside and play cards if it's raining," said Hentsch.

That's because camping in the summer is a tradition.  "This is our 4th year coming here Memorial Day weekend," said Gowen.  And Patrick Morgan said, "I've been coming here since 1973."

And everyone is ready for a long weekend of enjoying the outdoors.  "We're gonna kick back relax, eat drink, and have a good time," said Hentsch.  Morgan said, "People are eager to get out.  It wasn't a hard cold winter but it was long."

So even though it may feel more like Spring than summer, these campers will be making the most of their holiday weekend.  "Memorial Day weekend it's a good time to get out and celebrate the holiday," said Gowen.
