The Pines Campground at Araps - What's happening! 15-Feb-2012 At 9:03:57 AM Mike Bee
I only manage to get to Araps about once a month, but I popped past yesterday on the way home from the Gramps and the place looks like a bombsite.

I appreciate the sentiment of having native trees in the campsite, but I'm a practical person, and at the end of the day, I don't care what trees are around me when I camp, as long as they are functional. This means that the trees don't drop limbs on me (Pines are better than Gums), offer good shade (either will work, though it will be a while before replacement trees offer any such benefits) and can deal with tarps, hammocks and slacklines being strung up between them (Pines are better for this generally). More the point, the pines are there already, whereas whatever we're going to replace them with will be decades away from being functional to the same extent as the current Pines.

As the saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
