Dockery Lake is normally a busy little campground through the summer. The lovely small mountain lake is surrounded by miles of wilderness with good hiking trails and interesting nearby points of interest. There are only eleven campsites, so getting one is usually a hit or miss chance.
Not during a weekend in late September, when four GWS members camped along the shoreline. In fact, the first two nights, we were alone!How could this be? It might have had something to do with the buckets of rain that fell from time to time. However, in between, were many hours of cool, foggy weather that was perfect for short hikes.
