We took two trips to Starkey's Point in May to open the camp and work on some new projects. Between the first trip in early May and our second visit over Memorial Day weekend, all the leaves came out and the lake water warmed to comfortable swimming temperatures. Memorial Day weekend was wonderful!
This season we invested in a new battery bank for the solar power system after the old batteries gave out last season. The new 600 amp-hour bank should provide for general lighting needs and charging phones, tablets, and e-readers. The main camp and all the cabins have lights with CFL bulbs and standard 120v outlets for your electronics.
For the 2017 season, we're considering upgrading the small solar array too for better, faster charging. We'll be sure to keep you updated when that happens!
